unlikely to happen but if someone hits you and they’re painted you could be liable since technically it’s a safety feature. Vinyl can be discretely peeled off.
Seems wildly unlikely unless you hit an NHTSA attorney. I'd imagine I run the same risk with non DOT approved mirror blinkers.

Or an enthusiast. Was mostly tongue in cheek, busting your balls after the curbed wheel discussion on being overly cautious :)

Raises the question, what if you got in an accident because your repaired wheel disintegrated and someone didn't see you coming because you didn't have orange side markers? If you also were TD1, would it be a felony?

Let me answer your question with a question. Did this happen in California?

Don't see why TD1 would have anything to do with it.

I had tinted windows and no front plate in California and never got a ticket for either outside of the silly LA meter maids. I also had a good shop that let me bring my car in with scalding hot headers to be able to pass emissions.
