Rainy Day Reminder
When your windshield wipers are on, your headlights must also be turned on. (Not just the running lights, but also the headlights – which means your taillights are also on, making your vehicle much easier to see.) According to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles’ California Driver Handbook, “You must turn on your headlights if snow, rain, fog, dust or low visibility (1,000 feet or less) requires the use of windshield wipers.” This law, as stated in California Vehicle Code 24400, took effect in January 2008.
