I have green halo lights in my car and I got pulled over by one sheriff but I've had them on in front of other police officers before but they never pulled me over. So are colored halo lights legal in Illinois.
I'm pretty sure most of the attorney's on this board are too old to know what halo's are. Put it this way you can have the standard whites/inner yellows like many BMWs are equipped with from the factory. Some of the new Camaro's have the blue but I don't think they stay blue when the actual headlight is on but if it came from the factory you'll get off that kind of a ticket. If you want to mod your lights I'd suggest either running the hyper whites or get a color changing unit so you can run something illegal at a show or for a shoot and then switch the color prior to driving back on the road.

I'm not sure what halo lights are but flashing green (first responder/ambulance) as well as red and blue lights (LEO) are not permitted unless you are a member of that group and on duty, although many law enforcement personnel do not pay much attention. Amber is OK.
