      Absolutely none that I know of.
      West Virginia would be at a standstill if camo wasn't allowed.

        In, what state? I know of no such law anywhere, but you'd be surprised what people pass into legislation.

          People have attempted to get a law put on the books around here restricting the good ol' "black & white" to only law enforcement, but it fails everytime. The idea of the government being able to dictate what color someone paints their car is a bit too much, whether you're talking about a private citizen or a privately-owned company.

            You mean like this?

            30.46 Sheriffs; motor vehicles color combination; badges; simulation prohibited; penalties.--

            (1) The color combination of forest green and white is adopted as the official color for use on the motor vehicles and motorcycles used by the various sheriffs of Florida and their deputies.

            (2) For purposes of uniformity and in aid of the recognition of their official identity by the public, a badge in the shape of a five-pointed star with a replica of the great seal of Florida with the map of Florida superimposed thereon inscribed in the center is designated as the official badge to be worn by the sheriffs and deputy sheriffs of all counties of the state.

            (3) It shall be unlawful for any person other than the sheriffs of Florida and their deputies, to color or cause to be colored any motor vehicle or motorcycle the same or similar color combination prescribed herein; provided, however, that any municipal police department or other law enforcement agency or any private person or concern using the same or similar color combination as of the date of this act shall be permitted to continue to use such colors until such time as new colors are adopted by such agencies, or private person or concern.

              Wow... So if I were to drive into that area on say, a green & white Yamasaki dirt bike, I could get a ticket? Ridiculous...

                The by-law enforcement unit of the City of Westmount (on the island of Montreal) had black cars with white doors with the city crest on the door & Sécurité Publique-Public Safety written around the crest. This was ok until they decided to add red flashers to the roof. The police blocked them. I don't know if they used legal means or just put pressure on the city. Their vehicles are now yellow

                My borough had Sécurité Publique on their cars. The provincial police blocked them saying that some police departments use Public Safety so they couldn't. They became SURVEILLANCE http://policecanada.policecanada.org...unQC004_NF.jpg

                  Ticket? No. Arrest for misdemeanor impersonating a Sheriff or his Deputy.

                    Even worse... I'm surprised someone hasn't fought this yet. Or is this one of those laws that they would only choose to enforce if they were to see a green & white CVPI, for example?

                    Not to sound anti-gov or anything, but I tend to agree with the masses. The government telling you what color car you can drive is taking it a bit far, in my opinion. Having a badge, lightbar, or "POLICE" in big letters is one thing, but the color of the vehicle? C'mon!

                      I saw it enforced one time in my life, a security vehicle was white with green lettering. It said "MALL SECURITY" on it. Deputies had the account before the mall changed ownership, and the mall brought their in-house security force with them.

                      Poor bastard wore white and green and had a white and green truck. The deputies were waiting for him.

                        We should consider ourselves lucky. In Japan, if you buy a Teal colored automobile, you may not change the color of that vehicle without the expressed written permission of their vehicle administration in that prefecture and when you go to the shop to have the car repainted, the perimssion form is examined and entered into the prefecture database and then after the paint job is completed, registered with the national police database. To change the color you must have a compelling for doing so. The fines are stiff and driving privileges withdrawn for a year.

                          I once owned, while I was in law enforcement, a Ford Pinto that was painted "school bus" yellow. It was quite a conversation starter with the girls.

                            The Ford Pinto has always been a coversation starter, especially after they started exploding when hit from the rear.
