    So I`m dropping my lady friend home, and cops pull us over, and dude gives me a citation and a court date because my break lights don't work. What part ofthe game is that? I`m also a student in another city that is 4 hours away, do they really expect me to hurt my head over something so stupid?

    I don't know how this stuff works. What if I fix it I wont have to go to court? Or what if I get a new car period?

    How are brake lights stupid? [​IMG]

    Your brake lights don't work, people can't see that you're braking, just get them fixed and you'll be fine.

    call your local police station and ask. you can probably just fix it and go in and show them. they can then sign it off.

    i've gotten pulled over for failure of break lights and gotten just a ticket, that cop was trying to fill his quota. Of course fix your lights because youdon't wanna another ticket. Maybe go to city hall or the courts and explain your situation, but don't let your ticket turn into a warrant. Youdon't wanna go to jail over no bs like that.
