Exclamation HarCo Headlight Zone

Anyone notice the new signs put up on Rt. 1 coming from the Hickory Wawa toward 24?

Theres a few big black signs that say something along the lines of Turn headlights on because of oncoming traffic or be fined. Doesn't make sense to me because 22 has just as high speeds, one lane each way and doesn't have those signs up.

My bro told me its probably because of the turn lane that cuts across to 23, I think its called Water Tower Way. I've almost hit people that were turning because they pull out right in front of me, having headlights on doesn't help with drivers who are idiots and have bad judgment.

Just sounds like another revenue trap for the pirates to sit at.

What I'm wondering... what is the law (if any) that allows them to ticket you for not having headlights on? Would the charge be failure to obey traffic control device?

I just saw it on my way home from school last night, it wasn't there last week. I just thought it was weird also that the background is black, rather than yellow or white.

The same signs are posted on MD 32 for the stretch between I70 and Clarkesville, and have been for at least several years. That portion of the road is almost all two lane, bounded by trees almost to the shoulder on both sides at some points, and has several slight curves. I think it's a precaution so that oncoming traffic will be more visible to people attempting to make a left turn or pass slow moving vehicles.

I'm not familiar with Rt 1 in that area, maybe the conditions are similar?

I've been driving that way 2x daily for years. There have been more than a few times I've passed an officer with radar on in that stretch of road during daylight hours and I looked down and noticed I had forgotten to turn on my lights. I've never been ticketed for it.

I think it's more of a sensible precaution/preventative measure than a revenue trap.

The light and speed cameras in Mo.Co, OTOH ---- .

My reason for it being a trap is that the road hasn't had those signs up for the past 10 years when the bypass was put in, but now they put the signs up.

There have been fatal accidents further down the road where it is 2 lanes in each direction and no median. I'm surprised they don't put some form of median on the Rt 1 bypass between 24 and the detention center, a small concrete barricade would work.

Those signs are all over various 2 lane roads with oncoming traffic, 32 in western Howard county, and 90 heading into OC being 2 examples I know have had them for years. The signs were more popular nationwide in the days before day time running lights where visibility was essential with oncoming traffic separated only by a double yellow line and having a closing speed usually 100mph or more.
