LONGMONT, Colorado — Broken tail lights are often a hassle, and sometimes getting it fixed happens later than it should.
But one driver in Colorado took matters into his own hands and came up with a pretty crafty solution.
In a Facebook post, police show a picture of the makeshift tail light on a vehicle — a red sports drink!
The officers recognized the hilarity of the encounter but stressed the importance of replacing faulty tail lights:
While we appreciate the ingenuity of this tail light, this is not a permanent solution. Working tail lights prevent accidents.
And for all those wondering, police later commented on the photo and said he did not, in fact, receive a ticket. They say the driver was even spotted at a repair shop later that day.
Better to be safe than sorry!
