A US driver was pulled over after police noticed the headlights on his car had been replaced by torches.
A Washington State Patrol officer pulled over a motorist on a freeway on the outskirts of Seattle early Monday morning, after seeing the vehicle with “super dim” headlights.
Upon inspection, the officer realised that the headlights on the car had been replaced by torches, which is illegal in the state as it does not meet the lumen requirements, officer Rick Johnson said.
The car appeared to have noticeable damage to the front of the car and the headlights seem to have fallen or broken off.
The lights were running out of power, and the motorist was driving on a suspended license, according to Johnson.
“I don’t know of any car manufacturer that duct tapes flashlights to the front of their cars upon sale,” Johnson said.
“But you know, I guess this is 2020, right?”
