State laws and Nitrous

I heard from a guy at the shop today, that if a person is pulled over and there nitrous bottle hose is hooked up to the bottle, that it was illegal and would be taken to jail! Does anyone know if this is true? I know I can call the police station and ask but I though I would throw this out and see what you guys thought first.

In MD, if one has a bottle...it must be shown on the car as a warning or placard type of notification to notify the fire dept. if the car is involved in a collision/fire. Now this was just a few years ago and I am not sure if it has been stiffened.

Never use(d) the stuff myself.

Where I live they will impound your vehicle and crush it especially if you are caught street racing. Not good

In Alabama they can impound your car and arrest you if the bottle is connected. If the valve is closed on the bottle and the bottle is placed in the trunk or somewhere so it's inaccessable from inside the car the line can be connected

Glad you live in Ohio. Next time you decide to run, please go east.

I don't see how having nitrous on a car could be illegal. if it is then so would be running a blower or any thing else that would give you more horsepower..in reality nitrous is no different than having a cold air induction system. It just does the job more efficiently. it places more oxygen in the manifold so more fuel can be used. my 2 cents

What makes nos illegal is that unlike a blower that is running when the motor is, nos is a pressurized accelerate. In case of a crash and fire the nos is pressurized in the lines and can be very dangerous to rescue workers. That is why it is illegal to have your lines on the bottle unless as I stated earlier the bottle if turned off and in a location not accessable while driving.

And the cops can give you a ticket for spitting on the sidewalk too.......

I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket or anything else for a nitrous bottle, a whiskey bottle however.........

I been driving around the Bay Area with no problems. My car is currently hoodless and the nitrous solenoids is very visual. I have it hooked up but the bottle is in the trunk and the bottle value is shut-off. My license plate states NOS and my steering wheel has the nitrous sticker affixed. Is that enough disclosure? Not sure about CA laws.
