Are You Supposed To Have Your Headlights On When It Is Raining?

Hi, I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz,

I am coming to you today from a very rainy Delaware Avenue in Wilmington, Delaware. We are going to answer a quick question. The question is, “Are you supposed to have your headlights on when it is raining?” The answer is, yes.

In most, if not all states, there is a law that says, “if it is raining and your windshield wipers are going, you need to have your headlights on.” The reason for it is not to help you see better. If you have a day where there is plenty of light, even though it is not sunny, there is plenty of light, but it is raining, having your headlights on is not going to increase your ability to see what is in front of you. What it does is, it helps other motorist to see you coming and that can make the difference between life and death. That can make a the difference between a safe, but rainy and dangerous ride.

If you have your windshield wipers wiping, you should have your headlights on. Try and stay safe out there. Try and stay dry. If you can avoid going out and driving in the rain, avoid it. Do the safe thing and hopefully you will keep yourself and your family and your friends safe as well. If you have a question for me, send me an email below. Thanks very much for watching.
