This might not be the best idea. Think about it this way you are in traffic and suddenly the guy in front of you shifts into reverse! It would make other drivers very nervous.

Funny as that may be you might want to make sure you can even have white brake lights in NY state. They may be illegal. They are not the most allowing state in the union.

With you being in NY state, I recommend against that due to your state laws. Maybe someone from up there could better help you out. I know that in many states you can only have amber or red lights showing at the rear of the car for normail use. Clear is reserved for back up lights to serve as a warning for others more than seeing where you go.

Are you allowed to have red reverse lights?

Can be done, basically find the wire that's hot when you turn on your signal lights/brake lights, and splice into that, then run the wire to reverse lights and re-wire them. Alot simpler than it sounds, i've done it and i'm even confusing myslef slightly

It probably a lot harder than wiring them to be brake lights too, but you could use one of the how tos on here and make both of them brake lights, but im not sure if they tell you how to make them turn signals too
