Is it state law that you have to have your running lights on 30 minutes after sunrise ( and 30 minutes before sunset)? I can't find the law.

I think that it's 15, but that is just what I was told, so that is what I do.

You can turn them off 30 minutes before sunrise but have to have them on 30 before sunset?

This makes no sense. That would mean I could turn them off at 6:20am.

Either way... I turn them on when it's until after the sun comes up and way before sunset just to be on the safe side and even in the Fog!

I went to tpwd website and it says dusk to dawn...30 before and 30 after may just be along the lines of "practical advice" after many wardens arguing with folks about whether the sun was actually up or not.

The number of boats out at dark and shortly after with no lights on was sickening.
