As of November 1, drivers on Bulgarian roads are required to have their lights on during the day for the duration of the winter months.

Traffic police are starting Monday the so-called "lights on" road check. They will be issuing tickets to drivers who forgot to turn their lights on and/or chose to ignore the legal amendments, adopted in the summer of 2006.

There is a courtesy period, however, with just warnings given during the first 8 days of the check, which will last until November 21.

Traffic police will also issue fines to drivers with malfunctioning windshield wipers blades and worn-out tires.

The lights have to be kept on during the day until March 1.
