11 CSR 30-7.020 - Alternate Equipment Regulations for Animal-Drawn Vehicles

PURPOSE: This amendment eliminates an alternative slow-moving equipment emblem on an animal-drawn vehicle, and provides additional specificity as to the location of the emblem.

(1) Non-electric lamps or lanterns may be used in lieu of the lights required by subsection 2 of section 307.125, RSMo. The lamps or lanterns must be amber at the front of the vehicle and red at the back and must be placed to the left side of the vehicle at a height of no more than six feet (6') from the ground. The lamps or lanterns shall be visible from the front and back of the vehicle at a distance of at least five hundred feet (500'), and any red lighting must not be visible from the front of the vehicle.
(2) An operator of an animal-drawn vehicle shall display an equilateral triangle that complies with subsection 2 of section 307.127, RSMo. Such emblem shall be placed no less than six inches (6") below the highest point on the rear of the vehicle. The reflective material shall be visible from a distance of not less than five hundred feet (500') to the rear when illuminated by the lower beams of vehicle headlights.
