It is also illegal to pass within 100 feet of any bridge, viaduct, or tunnel where you view is obstructed.
#17. Before getting out of your parked car on the traffic side of a street, you should:

Never slow down quickly to discourage a tailgater, which may increase the risk of being hit from behind.
#22. Any time you turn on your wipers due to bad weather, you must also:
Remember to turn on your headlights whenever you have trouble seeing others. If you have trouble seeing them, they may be having trouble seeing you. On rainy, snowy, or foggy days, it is sometimes hard for other drivers to see your vehicle. In these conditions, headlights make your vehicle easier to see.
