    i think they are legal

    i think it's only legal if it has

    POLICE STOP ! written on it.. i have unfortunately seen this sign up close a couple of times.

    They're legal, but telling the driver behind what you really think of him/her may get you into trouble for other reasons. Remember Clarkson and crew reviewing these on TG a while back.

    don't care this is cool think i may order one.

    WANT! Really need one of these for my motorcycle. Already know what I'm going to write on it!

    great bit of kit and so long as you cant see the red from the front of the vehicle and your message is not abusive then all is legit.....

    That's not a surprise, it was the same with under car neons!! However they'll stop you anyway

    I would have thought almost certainly illegal

    (see law here opsi.gov.uk/si/…htm)

    I reckon they probably break this law on moving lamps and flashing lamps if not others also:
    Movement of lamps and reflectors
    12.—(1) Save as provided in paragraph (2), no person shall use, or cause or permit to be used, on a road any vehicle to which, or to any load or equipment of which, there is fitted a lamp, reflector or marking which is capable of being moved by swivelling, deflecting or otherwise while the vehicle is in motion.
    Lamps to show a steady light
    13.—(1) Save as provided in paragraph (2), no vehicle shall be fitted with a lamp which automatically emits a flashing light.

    The police have these It says Police Stop. They are well cool. They have them on BMW 5 and 7 Series.

    These are illegal i think

    Also they would probably have cause to prosecute as these won't be 'E' marked (ie, certified for road use). As with anything though, depends who pulls you over.
