In Ohio the law does not state it can't but for the most part it's up to the officer but I think id have a case in court.

In my state (PA) you have to get a vertical plate, but it is legal as long as you get it. You can't mount the normal plate sideways.

In Ohio it isn't illegal via state law. But some local laws state that it must be visible from both left and ride side which would make it illegal in some cities. I would guess as long as you don't live in one of those cities you would likely win in court.

Really want to see what this looks like when it's done. Where will the lights be placed?
Its done. I ran into some problems with the led and probably needing a resistor so I just wired the old light and going to try and fab it on the plate. I'll take some pics when I get home.

Uh oh. I bought one of these Chinese STOP lights just like yours. I'm planning on replacing that big ol' rectangle, but keeping it in the same place on the back of the fender. I'll be following this closely to see how your electrical went. Keep us posted on your progress!

If it is LED you will just need a resistor.
