File This Law under "Dumb"

Missouri has a new law: if you are using your wipers, you are violating the law if you don't use your headlights too.

So, while driving in Mizzourah during a sunny summer day, if I decide to use my wipers to clean my windshield, I could be pulled over and ticketed for breaking the law? Next time I travel down to Mizzourah, remind me that it's just a little safer now.
