A new state law will allow agricultural implements to be moved on roads during periods of darkness.

Highway Patrol Troop B Commanding Officer Captain James Wilt reports the passage of Senate Bill 8 allows implements to be moved for short distances if they are equipped with proper lighting.

He says proper lighting is defined as “at least one lighted lamp or lantern exhibiting a white light visible from a distance of 500 feet to the front of the vehicle” and “a lamp or lantern exhibiting a red light visible from a distance of 500 feet to the rear”.

Slow moving vehicle emblems are still required to be displayed as well.
