Driving tip: did you know?

Under GA law, drivers in Georgia must turn on their headlights at these times: a half-hour before sunrise, a half-hour before sunset, when it is raining in the driving zone, and at any other time when there is not sufficient light to see at a distance of 500 feet ahead. It does not matter if streetlights provide enough illumination for the driver to see.  The headlight requirements apply even in a fully lit area or parking lot. If you are charged with a headlight offense, you can be subject to a fine and 3 points on your driver's license. For drivers under 18-years-old, 4 points in a 12-month period will lead to a license suspension.  The three points assessed for this offense almost assures that any other traffic offense will suspend a driver under the age of 18. So for your safety and others, turn those headlights on and please slow down when it’s raining.
