A new Massachusetts law (Chapter 481 of the Acts of 2014) now requires motorists to turn on their headlights when “when the vehicle’s windshield wipers are needed.”  Mass. General Laws Chapter 85 section 15 also states that headlights should be in use for a half hour before sunrise and a half hour after sunset or when visibility is under 500 feet.  The law will become effective on April 7, 2015.
