About to order a tail light for my bike. I live in NJ and guess the laws are different from state to state, but perhaps someone might know (generally)..

does my tail light need to always be lit, even when the brakes aren't being used?

I don't know about the law, but it is your only rear light. The rear blinkers are not running lights.

3 wires means 2 hot and 1 ground. 1 hot is constant and the other hot kicks in when u stomp the brake. Make sense?

Most states don't allow yellow lights to the rear, only turn signals. You can have as many red running lights as you wish to the rear. Red or yellow turn signals are fine under the law ... at least in the USA.
