I've used blue LEDs on my mountain bike for about a year, mostly for fashion, but they can also give a quick-glancing motorist the "hazardous customized car coming" reflex which may prevent a pull-out-in-front, much like HID headlights.
I once tried putting blue gels over standard 20-watt halogen headlights in an effort to prevent normal-coloured headlights from being visually lost in the car headlights behind me. Results were inconclusive, so with 'canadark' time coming again I'll have to continue the experiments.
Either way, if York Region Police really start cracking down on blue lights on vehicles, they have a whole lot of groundFX and windshield-wiper LEDs on every lowered Honda in town to deal with before they get to your bike. I think they'll just be glad you bothered with any lights at all.
Where did you find blue tireflies? I even wondered into some auto-customizing shops in Pacific Mall and 1st Markham Place and could only find red.
