In CT, your primary brakelights cannot be higher than 72 inches...

Sec 14-96c
(b) Every tail lamp upon every vehicle shall be located at a mounted height of not more than seventy-two inches nor less than fifteen inches.

I don't know. It depends on how high the lights are, where you live, and if an officer would even notice...

If this would be illegal, then those aftermarket altezzas would also be illegal. From what I've seen this lighting placement is what the altezzas use, or at least some brands.

Cheers!
