I just got pulled over and got a ticket a block from where the accident happened for a missing tail light, on my way home from work. I explained that I was in an accident and that there is a police report with his department proving this, and that that is the reason one of my tail lights is out. He said, "You can talk to the prosecutor and possibly get it reduced."
So, thanks, dumb bitch, for hitting me and leaving, like a dick. And thank you officer for being a dick, when you didn't have to be. I get that it's illegal to be missing a tail light, so whatever. I still think you're a dick.
