Headlights required on Zimovia Highway at all times

Drivers are now required to keep their headlights on at all times on a long stretch of Zimovia Highway, from the Case Avenue intersection to Nemo Point Road. The Alaska Department of Transportation noted in a press release the measure is intended to increase safety.

Zimovia Highway is a state highway, but it falls under local jurisdiction. That means local and state police can enforce the new headlight rule.

But Wrangell Police Chief Doug McCloskey said that likely will not happen right away.

“Our intentions are to give people a little time to get used to it before we begin any kind of enforcement,” McCloskey said.

Roads in Petersburg, Ketchikan, Prince of Wales Island, Juneau, Sitka and Haines are also part of the new safety measure.
