Check your state's DMV website?
YEs, cannot have white light from a tail light. Red tape or even some paint on bulb can save a ticket...
it has to be red to be a tail light
It's perfectly legal to not have lights. They just spend the extra money to put the light systems in cars so they look pretty.
... I love sarcasm.
Yes, it must be light in the ~650nm range. It can't be white.
do they make tape/plastic specificially for broken tail lights?
If it's not, it should be. Those uncovered bulbs are very bright, which is super-annoying to the driver behind you. Get it fixed, please.
I have some on my truck now, actually. OP: I have extra, too, if you want to come & get it..
Where did you buy it?
I wonder if there is such a thing as transparent duct tape? hmmmmm
Yes there is. It's not clear like glass tho.
Any auto parts store will have tail light repair tape.

not sure in Iowa,
but in NY State, it is illegal
I bought it at Wal-Mart..I believe it was $2.xx. It's basically transparent red packing tape, but much more durable.
Go down to a junk yard for $5-10 and get a replacement.
Just get a bulb condom at a truck stop.
yes, my inspection station said they cant pass it as is...so they taped it up with some semi clear red tape.
Take it to the local P.D. and ask them
Quite the post for your first one, isn't it??
Better start than most, eh?
I'm betting this is an alias.
I think it is illegal, but the biggest reason to fix it is to keep from getting stopped all the time rather than to avoid actual tickets. Any broken lights or glass on a car is a beacon to every cop that sees it.
