LimeGreen not bright enough?!?!

So I got Pulled over for not having a license plate light (And it was 3degrees off of being vertical) and no reflectors(Lime green bike is not bright enough i guess...)

Haha so the reflectors easy fix same with the plate not being straight.

But since I don't have the stock fender anymore I'm not really sure where to get or put a light on.. My whole signal/break light dealy is a little redneck.
I.E. I'm using most of the stock stuff but the signals are zip tied on :) and the license plate is on with a 90 degree bar piece..
any Ideas or Photos for me?

Thanks for any help all!! :)

Toss a little piece of reflective tape from walmart on the plate.

And you could get something such as this for the led lighting: http://cgi.ebay.com/Universal-LED-Li...QQcmdZViewItem

I aint going to the morgue cuz fear is on my side. But I rot my brain out with thoughts of one wheeled suicides. On a permanent field trip every time I get on and ride. My road rash feels like it just got hit with hydrogen peroxide.

Reflective tape wont work apparently. It has to be Red on the back sides, and Amber on the sides up front.
But I think I'll pick up that light. that seems perfect!

I'm not sure why either, But he was pretty explicit by saying that I could add EXTRA tape but it's no replacement for reflectors.

I don't understand how the two is any different. But ANOTHER alternative is to take one of those small, rectange red reflectors they put on mountain bikes and put it on your chain guard where it dips downward over the sprocket.
