HOUSE BILL No. 2221

(Amended by Chapter 100)


An Act regulating traffic; concerning certain lighting equipment; amending K.S.A. 8-1723

and repealing the existing section.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

Section 1. K.S.A. 8-1723 is hereby amended to read as follows: 8-

1723. (a) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with not more than two

side cowl or fender lamps which shall emit an amber or white light with-

out glare.

(b) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with not more than one

running-board courtesy lamp on each side which shall emit a white or

amber light without glare.

(c) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with one or more back-up

lamps either separately or in combination with other lamps, but any such

back-up lamp or lamps shall not be lighted when the motor vehicle is in

forward motion.

(d) Any vehicle 80 inches or more in overall width, if not otherwise

required by K.S.A. 8-1710, and amendments thereto, may be equipped

with not more than three identification lamps showing to the front which

shall emit an amber light without glare and not more than three identi-

fication lamps showing to the rear which shall emit a red light without

glare. Such lamps shall be mounted as specified in subsection (g) of K.S.A.

8-1710, and amendments thereto.

(e) Any vehicle may be equipped with one or more side marker lamps

and any such lamp may be flashed in conjunction with turn or vehicular

hazard warning signals. Side marker lamps located toward the front of a

vehicle shall be amber and side marker lamps located toward the rear

shall be red.

(f) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with neon ground effect light-

ing, except that such lighting shall not be flash, any shade of red nor shall

any portion of the neon tubes be visible. ``Neon ground effect lighting''

means neon tubes placed underneath the motor vehicle for the purpose of

illuminating the ground below the motor vehicle creating a halo light

effect.

Sec. 2. K.S.A. 8-1723 is hereby repealed.

Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its

publication in the statute book.

Approved March 27, 2002.
