I look in the rear-view mirror and my heart leaps to my throat. Perhaps you’ve experienced this too. The flashing lights that indicate it’s time to pull over and be humbled by a police officer. A thousand thoughts run through my head in an instant – “Did I signal that lane change? Was that light actually red before I went through the intersection? How long have the cruiser lights been flashing? Is this a safe place to pull over? Have I actually broken a law? Can I plead ignorance?”
I’ve never considered that my car itself may be the reason I was being pulled over.
A business-woman in China was pulled over for driving a bumper car down the street – a BUMPER CAR. She owns a bumper car business, so the woman drives one of the cars to and from work each day. Police “lectured her and seized the bumper car” according to reports. While practical for the situation, what fun a bumper car is without others to run into.
