Sounds kinda petty to me to pull you over just for that.

If it was nighttime I can see the cops side of the story 100%, if it's night you need your headlights on, doesn't matter if your fogs are just as bright as the heads. It's like getting pulled over for having a bulb out, they just want to let you know. If he didn't give you a ticket, why do you really care? He's doing his job trying to keep the roads safe.

I've heard a couple of stories like this where cops are pulling people over for very minor problems. I have heard by way of the grapevine that in general, people are driving slower to conserve fuel. Because of that, the cops aren't able to write as many traffic tickets for speeding and for accidents caused by speeding and wreckless driving. So they're now looking for any excuse to pull someone over to write a ticket to bring in some money to the city coffers. However, in this case, since you didn't get a ticket, maybe he was just trying to warn you before you got to the cop that WOULD write you a ticket...

Yea, it sucks to get pulled over and hassled a little for something so trivial, but at least you didn't get a ticket and have your insurance rates go up.

Not to mention that most of the DUI and drug busts are made when a cop just pulls over a car for a light out or not turned on at all. And fogs are no where near as bright as head lights. Poses a safety hazard and a good way to get run over by a driver that can't see you coming. :biggrin:

Good call. Seeing as most drunks forget to turn on their headlights, seems like an appropriate reason to pull you over to me. He didn't ticket you, so why *****? Makes for bad car-ma. Next time you might not be so fortunate.

I've been pulled over for my license plate light being out. Now that was a bored cop... because honestly, only cops care about that light.
