An Act clarifying the headlight law as a non-surchargeable offense for insurance purposes.

 

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to clarify forthwith the headlight law as a non-surchargeable offense for insurance purposes, therefore, it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

Section 15 of chapter 85 of the General Laws, as amended by chapter 481 of the acts of 2014, is hereby further amended by adding the following sentence:-

Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, a violation of this section shall not be considered as a conviction of a moving violation of the motor vehicle laws or a surchargeable offense under section 113B of chapter 175 or under any merit rating plan or safe driver insurance plan.
