Regarding the May 13 news article “Bill requiring 2 brake lights approved”: I find no reference to which two brake lights must be working when brakes are applied. Does the third upper brake light count as one of the two working lights or must both lower brake lights be working to meet the requirements of the law?
Fortunately, my vehicle instrument panel will advise me as to which brake light does not work, but older model cars do not have this feature.
This is a ridiculous bill as many drivers do not know when a brake light is out until someone alerts them. So does the driver get a warning ticket or a revenue-generating ticket if stopped by a law enforcement officer?
If this bill becomes law, it certainly should address all relevant issues, not just the so-called simplification as proposed by the bill’s sponsor. And I was led to believe this legislature was interested in simplifying the legal process!
