Using wipers? Turn your lights on
To the Editor:
I am a retired safety director. I notice safety items not only in places of work, but also how in how people get to and from work.
One item I worked with was a law most states, including Minnesota and Iowa, have: when windshield wipers are being used, then headlights are to be on. Not daytime running lights. A state trooper has said, “Headlights in the law means not only your headlights but also tail lights.”
Today (Oct. 2), on Highway 15 between Walmart and Truman, I met more than 40 cars that did not have their headlights on.
In the past, I have called various businesses and towns about their vehicles that were not following the law.
