CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Drivers beware! Not turning on your lights when your wipers are on could cost you big bucks.

Starting today, January 1, 2010, if you get caught without them on during the rain, snow or fog it's a ticket and a 100 dollar fine.

The new state law actually went into effect earlier this year but cops were only allowed to issue warning tickets for six months.
