    This is a great example where digging into the regulations yourself will give you an insight to where the regulations are, how they are ordered, and some practice reading them.

    The specific regulation you are looking for is in part 91 (general operating flight rules) in the sub part (flight rules) under the topic of visual flight rules. Following these steps should get you to regulation 91.155. Learning these steps is helpful, otherwise get really comfortable to the index.

    Finding it yourself will help you learn and be comfortable learning the regs for the future. That being said, everyone on this forum is here to help, so if you need further assistance, please ask.

    Very closely matched under the same part and section is the rules for special vfr flight in class d airspace.

    Great answer by Chris.

    Following up on it, learn the table of contents and which Parts apply to your question. Looking for the flight rules associated with Class D, would you start with

    Part 13 – Investigative and Enforcement Procedures
    Part 23 – Airworthiness Standards: Normal, Utility, Acrobatic, and Commuter Category Airplanes
    Part 61 – Certification: Pilots, Flight Instructors, and Ground Instructors
    Part 91 – General Operating and Flight Rules
    Part 97 – Standard Instrument Procedures
