NEW HEADLIGHT LAW
Massachusetts has enacted a new law which took effect on April 7th regarding the use of headlights when driving in adverse conditions. Headlights must now be used when:

  • Driving in rainy conditions during the daytime
  • Driving in foggy conditions
  • Driving 30 minutes before sunset
  • Driving 30 minutes before sunrise
  • And, of course, driving in the dark

Violations will result in a minor traffic violation, which is surchargeable and may result in higher insurance premiums. For information, visit www.mass.gov/rmv. return to menu
