    Just a quick FYI, I was recently pulled over for the same reason and my plate light wasn’t working. Whereas I got a warning to get it repaired, two months ago my brother got a ticket for the same thing. My brother and I? We’re white guys in our 50’s. I should also note that when I was pulled over, is was daylight but raining and it’s a law in Illinois that if you have your windshield wipers on, you also have to have your lights on. Lights on, plate lights not working … the stop was justifiable.

      I didn’t even know about that light until two years ago…and I’ve been driving since I was a teen. I think its a great way for cops to pull you over…a legit justification to pull you over to meet their quotas (supposedly, there are no more quotas…my ass.)

      • Tom Brechlin says:

        Damn right they have quotas. Another law that I am now aware of because a friend was pulled over is this. On 4+ lane highway, if there is a police car on the shoulder, you’re required to move one lane over. That’s all fine IF you don’t have a car next to you.
