Ask HPD: Headlights at night

Q. "What time are you required to turn on your headlights in the evening?"

A. Every driver, including motorcyclists, must turn the headlights on at least 30 minutes after the sun goes down. Headlights should also be turned on whenever needed to enhance visibility of the roadway.

When driving through a tunnel, like the H3, headlights must be turned on no matter what time of day it is. Violators can face a $47 or $72 citation.
