WHAT DO PEOPLE USE WHIP LIGHTS FOR?

People put whip lights on their vehicles for a range of reasons, they include:

  1. A new way to make your vehicle look more distinct and unique -  to stand out from the crowd or just have some fun by adding cool stuff on your vehicle.
  2. Providing additional visibility and safety benefits - particularly on work vehicles, trucks and vans or farms and commercial worksite vehicles, diggers and contracting equipment.
  3. Enhancing vehicle visibility at long distances eg for smaller vehicles to be more easily seen and tracked eg motor bikes, buggies and quad bikes, or to simply stand out in busy working areas.
  4. Providing portable flood lighting in remote dark areas. Ideal for camping /beach /rural party lighting. The whip lights run low amps off your battery and are bright enough to leave on while parked up to light up an area for ambient lighting. Perfect for night time parties.

 

LEGALITY OF WHIP LIGHT USAGE

Are Whip lights Legal in New Zealand?

Yes. LED Spiral Whip lights are totally legal to be mounted and turned on day and night for both on road and off road use in New Zealand.

There are however, clear restrictions with your cosmetic and whip light usage when you are driving on public roads in New Zealand.

Cosmetic light usage when you are driving on public roads in New Zealand.

  • FRONT MOUNTED WHIPLIGHTS:   CAN only use the white or amber solid colour at the front.
  • BACK MOUNTED WHIPLIGHTS : If mounted at the back of your vehicle they can only be red or Amber.
  • On- road, you can NOT use any other colours or any of the motion, movement or spiraling colour setting modes at all on the front or back. 
  • Any flashing, dazzling or light movement is deemed 'dangerous and distracting' to other drivers and is for Police and Emergency vehicle use only.
  1. According to NZTA  'It is against the law to use cosmetic lamps in a way that could dazzle, confuse or distract other road users’.
  2. NB: There are also now legal limits on how many extra lights can be fitted on a vehicle and where they can be located for on-road, as well as restrictions on "cosmetic lighting". So if you already have modified, additional or cosmetic lights fitted to your vehicle, it is your responsibility to understand all the latest New Zealand regulations before installing your NZ Whiplights.

Check out our even more detailed BLOG on this question.

For Off-Road usage you can use any and all flashing modes you wish.  If you are at all unclear, for the latest regulations check out the Waka Kotahi / NZ Transport website for exact rules and regulations on lighting.

What are some of the Cosmetic Vehicle Lighting rules in New Zealand?

According to the NZTA website, on road rules apply to spots/light bars but by default also include rules for Whip lights. These state when driving on public roads...

  • They must be angled downwards and fitted so that the light source isn’t directly visible from the front or back of the vehicle (this will prevent the lights distracting, confusing or dazzling other road users).
  • You must not be able to see any red light from directly in front of the vehicle.
  • They should only give off light that is spread out (diffuse) rather than light concentrated in a beam.
  • They must not be positioned close to essential lights such as headlights or indicators.
  • They must not flash, pulse, fade in and out or change colour.
  • They must not revolve, rotate or move in any direction.
