New Massachusetts Law

Massachusetts drivers will be required to turn on their headlights whenever they turn on their windshield wipers starting on April 7.

The Massachusetts legislature passed the new law – M.G.L.c.85, sec 15 – in December 2014. 

Basically, if you need your wipers, you must use your headlights, even on a sunny day that has road conditions that require your windshield wipers.

Under the law, a police officer can pull you over for failing to comply. The police officer also can issue a ticket for failure to compile with the new Massachusetts headlight law. The ticket is considered a surchargable traffic violation. These violations can increase car insurance premiums.
