Did you know that if your windshield wipers are on, your headlights are
also required to be on?
According to Pennsylvania Vehicle Code Law, the operator of a vehicle on
a highway must display their lighted head lamps and other lamps and illuminating
devices in the following situations:
- Any time when the operator cannot discern a person or vehicle upon the
highway from a distance of 1,000 feet due to insufficient light or unfavorable
atmospheric conditions, including rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog, smoke or smog.
- Any time when the vehicle's windshield wipers are in continuous or
intermittent use due to precipitation or atmospheric moisture, including
rain, snow, sleet or mist.
Be sure to follow the rules of the road and turn on your headlights during
inclement weather, in order to keep you and those around you safe.
