West Virginia Bill to Allow Uncovered Aftermarket Light Bars Approved by Committee; Moves to Judiciary

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

A West Virginia bill would allow owners of vehicles to install or use aftermarket light bars and do so without obtaining approval from the Commissioner of Highways.

Legislation to eliminate the requirement that roof-mounted off-road light bars be covered when vehicles are operated on roads and highways was approved by the House Roads and Transportation Committee and has now been referred to the Judiciary Committee. The bill would also allow owners of vehicles to install or use aftermarket light bars and do so without obtaining approval from the Commissioner of Highways. The measure still requires that light bars be turned off when vehicles are being operated on roads and highways.
