Missouri Drivers... New State Law See Attached PHOTO

State Law:  Headlights on when windshield wipers are required. 

Since we have been inundated with rain for the past month, wake up Missouri.  This law is a good one.  It may save your life because other drivers are having a difficult time seeing you in the rain.

Driving back tonight from Tan Tar A i came up behind a truck towing a trailer and it was raining very hard.  Guess what.......The truck did not have its lights on and it was getting dark too.

Erby,

I have to agree.  If you do not have your lights on and you get into a wreck, I would imagine it is your fault..

Richard,

I know it is a great law but I think the police need to enforce it as a preventative measure....;-)

Ann, this is a good law, I don't live in Missouri, but I often see cars driving at dusk when it is very difficult to see.  Too many people forget that headlights serve two purposes to see and to be seen.  I like this idea.

Hi Ann, that is a very good law!  I have day time driving lights- so my headlights are always on.  Still if it's inclement weather, I turn "the lights" on - so I have tail lights too.  It is so much safer!

Ann I had not heard of any laws like this before, but it does not surprise me that someone would come up with it.

This has been a law here for years.  Most of the newer cars have daytime running lights so with or without rain most cars have their lights on all the time.  It is definitely a much needed law for safety.

I don't know.  People who don't have common sense don't usually follow the law anyway.

Kinda like "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!

Mary,

I have my lights on all the time.  I will have to check the tail lights and see if they go on also.  I am cautious when it is raining....

You would think common sense would tell a person they need the lights on...
