Ignore These Repairs and You May Get Pulled Over!

It happens to all of us, a turn signal goes out or a windshield gets cracked and we end up pushing it under the rug. These may seem innocent at the time, “I’ll fix it next time I’m in the shop!” but some of the things can get you pulled over or – even worse – get you a ticket!

Here are some items that should be addressed as soon as they come up, including: 
  1. Turn signals, headlights and/or taillights that are cracked/broken or have burned out. The majority of states require all vehicles to have functioning turn signals as well as two working taillights and headlights. If your taillights are cracked, they can often give off a white light, which may also result in a ticket – they should always give off a red light. 
  2. Cracked, discolored or tinted windshields may result in a ticket for the driver and possibly a fine. 
  3. Make sure that your license plate is readable! Clean off the dirt, mud or anything that’s covering it. If the paint on the letters or numbers has come off, it’s time for a new one. Also, check and make sure your license plate light is properly functioning. 
  4. Having a loud exhaust system can also result in a ticket or fine! Whether this was due to a modification or a repair, check with your state to see what they define as “loud.” 
All of these may seem small and sometimes inconvenient, but these are a few of the skipped repairs that will get you pulled over! If you’re lucky, you might get off with a warning, but it’s better to be safe than sorry while protecting yourself and others on the road by making necessary repairs.
