Soliday: Colored vehicle headlights now banned

Back To Front Page


State Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, is reminding motorists of two new laws which went into effect on July 1.

The first law regulates distracting headlight colors and requires Indiana drivers to have either white or amber headlights on their vehicles. Colored lights like red, blue or green are not allowed on the front of vehicles, and backup lights should also be white or amber. Taillights must be red. This law reserves colored lights for emergency vehicles only, eliminating confusion on the roadways.

The second law allows Hoosiers to request free carbon monoxide tests for the interior of their vehicle at local fire departments. “Savannah’s Law” is named after an Indiana high school student who died in a car crash after the deadly gas infiltrated her vehicle due to a faulty exhaust system.
