Subchapter 014 : EQUIPMENT(Cite as: 23 V.S.A. § 1361)
§ 1361. Lights on vehicles other than motor vehicles
Every vehicle on wheels or runners, whether stationary or in motion on a public highway, shall have attached to it a light which shall be so displayed as to be clearly visible from the front and rear during the period from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise. However, this section shall not apply to a vehicle which is designed to be propelled by hand. During the same period, towed or trailing vehicles, farm machinery, or other equipment, whether stationary or in motion on a public highway, shall have attached to them a red light or reflector which shall be so displayed as to be clearly visible from the rear, under normal atmospheric conditions, or a reflectorized slow moving vehicle symbol of a standard type approved by the Commissioner. Nothing contained in this section shall be construed to affect any statute, rule, or regulation requiring lights on motor vehicles and the obligation of the owner or operator thereof. The driver of a vehicle shall be deemed the responsible party, liable to the penalty for violation hereof. (Amended 1966, No. 38 (Sp. Sess.), § 4; 1971, No. 228 (Adj. Sess.), § 22.)
