Cool Looking White Taillights

I saw some taillights today that when he was driving the light being emitted was white but when he broke it was red and im pretty he had tinted taillights on it, so it basically looked like really bright reverse lights while he was driving, is this legal? anyone know how its done?

I believe completely clear taillights are illegal. You need the red color to be there for visibility in case the light does go out. This is also why I hate blacked out tails. sounds like the person used the original bulbs into the tails, so the clear bulb which lights up the red housing, was just lit up clear and white.
