Scoot Commute

A friendly public service announcement for the drivers of Rhode Island

Posted in Buddy St. Tropez (Franz Biberkopf), Daily Commute by sbahn on 2010/02/24

Per R.I.G.L 31-24-1: “Times when lights required. ā€“ (a) Every vehicle upon a highway within this state at any time from sunset to sunrise and at any other time when windshield wipers are in use, as a result of rain, sleet, snow, hail or other unfavorable atmospheric condition, or at any other time when there is not sufficient light or visibility, because of severe rain or any other condition, to clearly see persons and vehicles on the highway at a distance of five hundred feet (500′) ahead, shall display lighted lamps and illuminating devices as respectively required under this chapter for different classes of vehicles…”

Cliff Notes version: Wipers on = headlights on.

Just a neighborly reminder to my fellow Rhode Island drivers…turn on your lights! And not just your parks, but the regular car headlights. It was after 5:00pm, very grey and almost dark, and pissing down with rain on the scoot home tonight, and I estimate 25% of the vehicles did not have lights turned on.
