The Missouri State Highway Patrol wants to remind Missouri’s motorists to turn on their headlights when they use their windshield wipers. Missouri law requires lighted lamps any time weather conditions require use of the motor vehicle’s windshield wipers to operate safely. A rainy day can result in decreased visibility. Your headlights will help other drivers see you. In addition, motorists are required to use their headlights during periods of fog, regardless of wiper use. It’s better to be seen than to be in a traffic crash. Be safe. Be seen. Turn on those headlights!
