Are Your Headlights On?

Drivers beware! A new Massachusetts law mandates a vehicle's headlights be on "when the vehicle's windshield wipers are needed." Rain, drizzle, and snow all require headlights be in use. This is a surchargeable minor motor vehicle offense. Failure to comply with this law may result in a ticket being issued, and a surcharge assessed against you.  Headlights must also be on one-half hour before sunset and one-half hour after sunrise.  So get those headlights on!
