Paragraph 18 states that "the lighting system shall allow the driver to use three categories of light : position lights, code or crossing lights, high beam or cruise lights"

Article 152 concerning the audible warning states:
Paragraph (a) "Every vehicle shall be equipped with at least one sounding device of sufficient power, without any gongs, gongs, bells, sirens or other shrill sound likely to cause noise disturbance. These alarms should be heard at approximately twenty-five (25) meters.
Paragraph d) It will not be admitted as warning of multiple tubes sounds or whistles.
Subparagraph (e) The use of sirens is exclusively reserved for police vehicles, ambulances and vehicles of the fire service.

Article 154 states "No opaque material, no self-adhesive film shall be affixed to the windows and windshields of the vehicle"

"As a result, owners and drivers or drivers of vehicles are urged to take all appropriate measures as a matter of urgency to adjust the lighting, audible warning and windshields of their vehicles. Instructions were passed to the Haitian National Police to bring the necessary adjustments to this state of affairs that is harmful to the country and the population through the strict application of the Highway Code."
