Rep. VerHeulen talks about his HB 5247, signed into law earlier this month as PA 161 of 2016, which amends the Motor Vehicle Code to allow for the use of green flashing, rotating, or oscillating lights on state, county, and municipal vehicles engaged in snow removal.  Rep. VerHeulen says the measure leaves the use of the lights open to local governments, but adds the utilization of green lights needed additional definition in state code.  Research suggests the green lights make for better visibility in winter situations.
