Motorcycle Headlamp Modulation

For those attorneys that don’t regularly represent motorcyclists, some Police agencies are unaware of the legality of modulating headlights and mistakenly give out tickets for this equipment. The following sections can be used when representing someone that has been cited.

49 CFR 571.108 S7.9.4. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards This allows motorcycle headlight modulation in all 50 States.

Title 49 USC 30103 (b1) prohibits any state from forbidding a system that conforms to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards section 108.

If you would like to add to the FYI, please email me your information with citations. If you would like to be given credit, please include your name and website and I will list them.
