If you are looking for answers on snowplow lighting laws or yellow roof lights you really need to do a little
Investigating. But the wait is there a Law? Because I do not see all plow trucks with a yellow light on the top of their vehicle roof.
How are you going to find out what your requirements are if any? The failure to properly prepare your truck is your first mistake and to just go out and start plowing, without any knowledge of what safety lighting you need is just plain foolish.
There is no problem until somebody hits you, because they did not see your vehicle. Now, the few driveways you wanted to plow to make some extra money, has just became a major problem.
Why because you were negligent, you did not do your homework. You did not investigate to make sure your vehicle had the proper safety lighting on it, so now you have caused an accident while plowing. I ‘m not lawyer, but I try to keep in mind other people and how, what I do can effect them. Being a service provider like snowplowing you need to think along these lines. Other vehicles on the road will not think for you, that’s for sure and half the times you have to dodge them but that’s is part of the game. Now drivers pay less attention to driving because they are on the phone, texting and so on, we all see it every day on the road. So if you are going to snowplow you need to find out your laws for lighting as well as snow plowing.
The best place to find this answer is to search for the DOT for your state. The Department of Transportation website, should have the guidelines for snowplowing and snowplow lighting. Remember, because of the different type’s of winter storm area’s, the DOT guidelines change so you have to go by the state you are snowplowing in. This is very important. So when it comes to what are your snowplow requirements you should be able to find your answers at the DOT website. Happy snowplowing, remember Edgeolite is always trying to keep you safe.
