PARKING LIGHTS

A vehicle may not be driven on a public road with only the parking lamps lighted while such vehicle is in motion.

REAR LAMPS
You may not ride any motorcycle or a motor tricycle on a public road unless such cycle is fitted with a rear lamp emitting a red light to the rear.
You may not drive a light motor vehicle on a public road unless it is fitted with lamps at the rear, emitting a red light to the rear.
You may not drive a heavy motor vehicle on a public road unless such motor vehicle is fitted with at least one lamp on each side at the rear emitting a red light to the rear.

STOP LAMP
You may not drive a light motor vehicle or motorcycle on a public road unless it is fitted with stop lamps at the rear. When in use, they must emit a red light, which must be greater than that of the light emitted by the rear lamps and must be visible in normal sunlight at a distance of 30 metres to a person of normal eyesight.

A person may not drive a heavy motor vehicle on a public road unless it is fitted with at least one stop lamp on each side at the rear of the motor vehicle which shall, when in use, emit a red light and the intensity of which shall be greater than that of the light emitted by the rear lamp on the motor vehicle and shall be visible in normal sunlight at a distance of not less than 30 metres to a person of normal eyesight.
When a stop lamp is illuminated, this indicates that the vehicle is decreasing speed and may stop.

NUMBER PLATE LAMP
You may not drive a motor vehicle on a public road, unless it is fitted with at least one number-plate lamp at the rear, illuminating the number plate. Every letter and figure of such plate must be visible from a distance of 20 metres by a person of normal eyesight.
