Effective, today, April 7, 2015, a new Massachusetts law requires drivers to turn on their headlights when their vehicle's windshield wipers are in use. The law also states that headlights should be in use 30 minutes before sunrise and sunset or when visibility is less than 500 feet. 

Drivers can be ticketed for failing to comply with the new headlight law. For more information or to view the full law, click here. A violation is subject to a $5 fine and is considered a surchargeable minor motor vehicle traffic offense for insurance purposes.
