Georgia Bill to Allow for Light Bars Eligible for Reconsideration in 2020

Legislation (H.B. 410) introduced in the Georgia House of Representatives to allow for the installation and operation of bar-shaped auxiliary lighting on motor vehicles driven on public roads under certain conditions failed to be enacted before the legislature adjourned for the year.  Currently, the use of such lighting is limited to off-road purposes only.  

The bill recognized that auxiliary lighting can improve the performance, aesthetics, and safety of vehicles under certain conditions.  It also promoted the fact that aftermarket lighting systems, including light bars, have many legitimate uses that include the facilitation of off-highway activities such as hunting and camping.  

By rule, H.B. 410 is eligible to be carried over to the 2020 legislative session. 

Thank you to those who voiced support for this legislation!
