Snow Plows with Green Lamps
With the arrival of winter, snowplows are back on Wisconsin roads. Wisconsin law recently changed to allow municipal highway deparments to equip their snowplows with green lamps. The green lamps are in additon to the red and amber lamps that were already allowed by law. Wis. Stat. 347.26(7) A driver on the road should always use caution when approaching, overtaking or passing a snowplow.
The decision was made to allow green lamps on snowplows after research showed the green lamps were more visible in snowy conditions. The green lamps are only allowed for municpal use to distinguish public from private snowplow removal.
