Report of the Tractor and Implement Safety Lighting Program 540224
PROPER lighting of slow-moving farm vehicles-a necessity when these vehicles travel the highways at night-was the problem tackled by the SAE Tractor and Implement Safety Light Subcommittee and a corresponding FEI committee.
Among the results of their work, which is reported in this paper, are:
A standard breakaway connector for the tractor and implement lighting system.
A telescoping staff lamp that can be extended to the left, when needed for safety, to show the left-hand end of an implement.
Changes in the Uniform Act Regulating Traffic on Highways to permit use of such a staff lamp.
A lamp with an extension cord for use where a staff lamp is not long enough.
A proposed standard bracket for holding the extension-cord lamp.
