Our Auxiliary light bill, HB 939, passed today in the House of Delegates on a vote of 100-0. We now move to the Virginia Senate. Thank you to all who took the time to email their legislators.
This bill would allow motorcyclists to utilize auxiliary lighting, such as LED accent lighting, in order to be more visible at night. Current Virginia law requires that all lighting be approved by the superintendent of the Virginia State Police. That means that all lighting must go through an approval process. The vast majority of smaller lights appropriate for motorcycles have never undergone such a process, and due to the size of the manufacturers making such lighting, most likely never will.

We will post additional information on HB 939 as it moves through the Senate.
