Big Island drivers reminded of headlamp law

Advertiser Staff

The Hawai'i Police Department is reminding the public about the law on using headlamps while operating a vehicle during the evening and early-morning hours and inclement weather conditions.

Hawai'i County Code Section 24-34 requires that "Every vehicle upon a highway within the County at any time from a half hour after sunset to a half hour before sunrise and at any other time when, due to insufficient light or unfavorable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of five hundred feet ahead shall display lighted lamps and illuminating devices."

Police said violators can be subject to a fine of $57.
