Installation of signs requiring that headlights be lighted. Requires VDOT to install at the approach to every bridge, tunnel, culvert, causeway, and other area where traffic safety may be diminished by limited visibility or sight distance, a sign requiring that vehicles display lighted headlights regardless of the time of day or weather conditions. Failure to obey these signs is a secondary offense but punishable as a traffic infraction. Read the Bill »
