Police Department partners to help drivers replace lights

WEB_DBPD program to replace headlights

Drivers who get pulled over in Daytona Beach for a broken or burned-out headlight, taillight, brake light or turn signal can receive a voucher worth up to $250 to cover repairs instead of getting a ticket. 

Announced by Police Chief Jakari Young, the department’s new initiative to fix burned-out light bulbs at no cost to motorists was created by partnering with the Minnesota-based Lights On! program and local repair shops. Drivers can redeem vouchers within 14 days for free repairs at these participating auto service providers: 

Teresa’s Garage, 388 N. Nova Road  (386) 675-6997

Gary Yeomans Ford, 1420 N. Tomoka Farms Road (386) 310-2342

Jon Hall Chevrolet, 551 N. Nova Road  (386) 271-4134

The Daytona Beach Police Department is the first agency in Central Florida to participate in the nationwide initiative created to build goodwill between police and the communities they serve. To date, 166 law enforcement agencies and 417 auto repair shops in 21 states have participated in the program. 

According to Florida statute 316.217, a vehicle is required to have its lights illuminated:

  • Between sunset and sunrise
  • When visibility is insufficient due to lighting or weather conditions like rain, smoke, mist or fog. (If the vehicle’s windshield wipers are in use, lights should be too.)
