What happens if you get a speeding ticket while driving on a restricted license?

If you are driving outside the restrictions of your license (e.g. driving after dark when the license permits driving only during the day), you are in essence driving with no license at all. If the only issue is your speed, the offense will be heard as with any other. Some states place a lower points threshold on age-restricted licenses, so a single speeding ticket could cause your license to be suspended.

Driving with no brake lights?

Driving with no brake lights can be very dangerous. If it is dark outside, a car behind you, may not see you. Having no brake lights will not alert any cars that you are slowing down or stopping.

Will auto insurance provide coverage for accident when violating daytime driving restricted license?

Why would you even want to consider a question like this? If a person is restricted to driving only in the daytime that means their license is not valid after dark. If you allow someone to drive when they do not have a valid license they may not be covered, they certainly are not legally driving. Also, the driver must be listed on the policy as a driver and you have to have given the company all their information like their drivers license, date of birth, driving record, etc.

On a 2000 Chevy Silverado why would the head lights pop on after taking the parking brake off or when it gets dark the dash board lights go out?

The lights are automatic for your daytime running lights AND your regular head lights. There is a light sensor on your dash that knows when it get dark. When it's dark your headlights will automatically come on, daytime lights turn off and your dashboard lights will dim as a result, since you no longer need them to be that bright when it's dark. As far as the parking brake, it triggers your daytime lights to turn off, so when you disengage your parking brake, they will turn on for normal driving. All of this is a good thing because you never have to worry about turning your on/off...ever.

What are the uses of automated parking lights?

"Parking Lights" or Running lights are there so your vehicle can be seen from all sides in the dark. The automated means that they come on and turn off automatically under certain lighting conditions. They are helpful because the human eye tends to see more light than is actually there when driving near dusk or in early Dawn. IF you are driving for several hours and it starts toi get dark, your eyes think it is lighter than it is because they have adjusted gradually with the decrease in natural light.

Are you allowed to drive with just your parking lights on in place of your headlights?

Proper Use of "Parking Lights"The answer depends on the "Traffic Code" for the State in which you are driving.However, they are called parking lights because they are supposed to be used to warn other vehicle drivers of the location, position, and "state" [parked] of your vehicle.Most jurisdictions prohibit driving with parking lights only. The only exception that might convince a Police Officer to not give you a ticket would be in the case of the loss of headlights out in the boondocks on a very dark night in which you drove only with parking lights to get to a safe place.
