is nitrous legal for street use in YOUR state?
Wednesday, April 20, 2005 7:29 PM
ive talked to everyone. cops, speed shop guys, and fellow drivers. nobody ever gives straight opinions about the stuff. so is nitrous definitely legal where some of you guys are? I know we all use it, but ive always wondered about the breaking-the-law aspect.

i dont think you can have it in a passenger car. if you have your bottle mounted in the interior then make sure you have a blanket or sweatshirt over it so a cop dont see it

The greater question is that it could be considered transportation of hazardous chemicals, which you need a license to carry, and is a federal law, not a state one. So technically, you can't even transport your bottle to the track if it has anything in it.

i think it depneds on the quantity you have, ive been told that if you have 10 pounds of compressed gas or less then you don't need a hazardous cargo placard on the car, if you have more than 10 you need a hazardous cargo placard and a hazmat endorsement on your licence

In PA you are not allowed to use it on the street. It can not be connected. If a cop pulls you over and the bottle is connected you get ticket. if its just sitting there looking pretty till track time comes then your fine.

It is not legal to "use" on the street in any state.

i believe the general law/guidline is that it is legal to have 1 (ONE) tank in your car out of reach of any person in the front of the car and unable to be switched on from the drivers seat. some places even require you to disconnect the hosing though. this is from asking numerous cops around my state, the states my friends live in that i visit, my uncle (20+ years as a cop in the west), and research online.

dont take this as law in your area though. do the required research.

my only question is why is it illegal to use?, obviously speeding is wrong, but say you enter the highway on ramp and want to accelerate to the traffic flow, what is wrong with nitrous? absolutely nothing

i don't see why co2 could be an issue at all, but then again i don't see why n2o is an issue either

so you want to use nitrous to get thru the flow of traffic? thats a recipe for an accident.
if you want to play catch up, just push the gas pedal down harder

The simple fact the nitrous is only used for drag racing should be a good clue. No one uses nitrous just to merge into traffic.

Wisconsin laws treat Nitrous Oxide in the same way it treats alcohol.

No open containers allowed in vehicle.
No containers can be with in reach of driver.





If its worth doing its worth over doing.

thats retarded, you can't get high of automotive nitrous, wisconsins law is dumb

and if your on the street and encounter a passing zone and are behind 2 tractor trailers going 10 under......nitrous is a great way to accellerate a lot faster to get around the trucks

and i don't know how you guys merge, but when i do, if the highway speed limit is 65 im doing at least 60 before i get off the entrance ramp and onto the highway, so when i get on the highway im already at speed, because i hate it when you are on the highway and some idiot is going super slow because he comes on teh highway at like 25 mph

rodimus: CO2 is a non-volatile substance. its completely inert in all forms so it shouldnt matter if its open or closed. well i guess the O2 could ignite but eh... No issue really especially since its not going into the engine as a performance enhancer.

Well in Texas ive been told by several Law Enforcement in severla different cities, that you can have it installed and hooked up in the car, you can have the no larger than a single 15lbs bottle, any bigger than that and they can say your distributing the stuff.

You can have the bottle filled, but you cant have the system armed and reay for use while on a Public road, you cant have a remote opening device, either a solenoid inline (NOS) or a remote bottle opener (NX) and that even if the system sisnt "armed" you can have the bottle open.

No i dont know anyody that has ever gotten busted for it, unless they wer caught street racing and them the cops get you for everything they can,

Oh and also it cant be installed in the Passenger compartment, or within reach of the driver.

One last thing, if you do get pulled over and the cop wants to "check" and make sure you have automotive grade N2O in the tank, and he finds that you have Madical Grade, then your busted as well, because Madical Grade N2O is a controlled substance.

Thats how i understand the Law in Texas

i tried, couldn't find anything, its not explosive, not flammable, not intoxicating, i can see no valid reason why it should be illegal
