Yvonne Zanos: Running Lights Don’t Count in Work ZonesAbstract:
There is a problem with using daytime running lights to comply with the work zone law. Steve Chizmar of PennDOT said daytime running lights shine at a reduced power. That’s one reason you are required to turn on your headlights. Another reason is that when you turn on your headlights, your tail lights come on as well. If you forget to turn on your lights, you won’t get a ticket. That is considered a secondary offense. You must first be pulled over for a primary offense such as speeding before you can be ticketed and subject to a $25 fine for not turning your headlights on.
