Canada Announces New Lighting Safety Standard

Autosphere » Fleet » Canada Announces New Lighting Safety Standard

The Government of Canada hopes to eliminate dangers associated with vehicles that drive in the dark with no lights on.

Marc Garneau, Canada’s Minister of Transport, has announced a new vehicle lighting safety standard, which will require all new cars sold in Canada as of 2021 to include:

  • Daytime running lights and tail lights that come on when the vehicle instrument panel is illuminated and the vehicle is in operation
  • Headlights, tail lights, and side marker lights that turn on automatically in low-light conditions or a system that keeps the driver’s instrument panel dark so the driver knows to turn on all the lights.

To raise awareness about vehicles that drive in the dark with no lights on, as well as vehicle lighting in general, Transport Canada has teamed up with the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) to renew its ‘SEE and be SEEN’ campaign, which raises awareness about vehicle lights with Canadian motorists.
