I was pulled over last night in Washington State for a broken brake light. Problem is on driver/passenger side there are 2 brake lights and turn signal lights, so if one goes out im still not "illegal". I was acually already out of my car and approching my house door when the police officer pulled in my driver way. But here is the thing, he didnt give me a ticket for that, he gave me a ticket for no insurance. The police officer also sighned my ticket signature box and told me that he wouldn't be ticketing me for the brake light or the License plate light that he saw after he had me turn on my lights so he could show me which light was out. My question is with a working brake light i was not illegal, so isn't the demanding of license, registration and proof of insurance an illegal stop? Ohh yea, he never asked me for my signature he just sighned COP, game to above. Isn't that the only way they have proof that i recieved the ticket also?
