Remember the Wichita driver who got ticketed for having Christmas lights on his truck? Thursday morning, officers pulled Dave Hill over again, despite his efforts to comply with Kansas law.
After he was pulled over Saturday, Hill switched out the red, blue and green lights with colors he thought were legal.
"We went with white and amber, the only lights that are allowed on the front," Hill said. "We changed everything out it took about 16 hours to do."
But it didn't work, police pulled Hill over again. This time giving him a warning and not a $90 ticket.
"The police officer that pulled me over this morning really didn't know, he said he thinks the bulbs may have to be hidden," Hill said.
Other drivers are doing the same thing.
Under Kansas law, the color of the lights does matter. Only emergency vehicles can use red and blue lights.
The number of lights is also important. According to the state head light law, no more than four headlights can be on at the same time. It doesn't say anything about small lights.
Police say it's a matter of keeping other drivers safe.
"Sometimes if someone goes overboard on lights it can be a real distraction, it can cause accidents," said Wichita Police Lieutenant Doug Nolte.
"I talked to one guy who says he's wrecked a car twice because of a pretty girl walking down the street," Hill said. "Are we going to outlaw those?"
Legal or not, Hill says the lights are staying.
"I guess I don't really care how much they hassle me or don't hassle me, the bottom line is it is bringing attention to our foundation that spreads kindness," Hill said.
