Please turn your lights on!
Wisconsin State Statue 347.06(1) – Operating without required lamps lighted (Fine: $162.70 and 3 points on your driving record)
“… No person may operate a vehicle upon a highway during hours of darkness or during a period of limited visibility unless all headlamps, tail lamps, and clearance lamps with which the vehicle is required to be equipped are lighted. Parking lamps … may not be used for this purpose.”
While observing traffic today, there are still too many vehicles out there that are not turning their lights on during inclement weather. Turning lights on is not necessarily for you to see, but for people to see you, ultimately keeping more drivers safe on our roads.
Another reminder, AUTO IS NOT ON! Technology is great, but only if it works! Many of us, (yes as law enforcement too) are guilty of relying too much on our auto lights. While they are a great feature, they are not great during times of inclement weather. Depending on your year, make, and model of your vehicle will determine what lights are activated (usually not all).
Make a new habit, any time you are driving start manually turning your lights on. Then turn them off when you arrive at your destination.
