He obviously means amber warning lights, not headlights. If you plow commercial lots it should be a requirement that you have some sort of warning lights.

It's not required here legally but I have a few accounts where the property owners require it. Also, when I plowed as a sub in the past it was also a requirement. Theres too many dumba** people who dont look before they drive and in the snow they seem to get even worse, I'd rather my trucks be visible then be hit.

Cloud9Landscapes - if you did snow, you'd understand why we use them.

Have you ever heard of snow plowing? I also like to have them if we are working on a busy road, it never HURTS to have them.


....By the way I don't have lights on my trucks...yet

I was referring to regular LCO's and not plow operators. Plow operators I can understand. I haven't even seen a snowplow in years where I live, they keep one at the CalTrans yard to scrape mud off the canyon roads.
