This is kind of a hard question to put into words. This relates to my seatbelt post as this citation was also issued by the same officer who pulled me over for speeding. I have a fully functional rear brake light on my car that's located in the middle of the rear window. After my vehicle was rear-ended in an accident I had to replace the trunk lid and replaced it with one that came off a newer model year of my car. This trunk lid had a spoiler and in the middle of the spoiler was a brake light. I couldn't hook it up since the connections are different, plus I don't need the brake light since the original one on the car is just fine.
The officer wrote me a ticket for the light not working, but I don't believe it was a fix-it ticket. I don't remember the officer stating that nor did the court office. This happened a few years ago so I don't remember to much. I still own the same car and I've been pulled over twice since then and those officers never mentioned anything about the light. If anyone here is familiar with Michigan vehicle laws or may have any idea on what that ticket could have been if it wasn't a fix-it ticket? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
