Good News For Maryland Motorcyclists

On April 8, 2008 Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed Senate Bill 713 authorizing the use of certain auxiliary lighting on motorcycles.

Effective June 1, 2008, Maryland motorcyclists can legally ride with light emitting diode (LED) pods and strips on their motorcycle, provided they do not blink, oscillate, or flash and are not red or blue, as these colors are reserved for law enforcement and emergency vehicles.

That leaves amber, green, hot pink, jade, orange, purple, and white. Too many car-motorcycle accidents are the result of the car driver not seeing the motorcycle. This is particularly true at night. Motorcycle accent lighting can change all that. With the proper products and installation, motorcycles can become highly visible from significant distances.

Wyked Illuzionz ( has been selling and installing LED lighting products on motorcycles and has been continuously promoting their use as a matter of safety. Their motto is “Be Safe….Be Seen” and Maryland bikers can now do just that.

When purchasing LED lights for motorcycles, whether you “do it yourself” or have them professionally installed only buy products that are waterproof and have high quality adhesiveness so the lighting fixtures (pods or strips), once applied, will not vibrate off. In addition, reputable companies will gladly provide telephone support to their customers. Also, installation should be done using separate wiring and a separate switch so as not to interfere with your bike’s wiring or its warranty. Be aware, too, that the quality and brightness of motorcycle LED lights vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Senate Bill 713 also authorizes the use of blue dot illumination on the rear of the motorcycle as part of, or adjacent to, the rear brake light and standard bulb running lights.
