have you ever been 'flashed' by a cop?

i have.

let me 'splain ... no there is too much ... let me sum up.

i was driving andy's jetta - when the emergency brake is released the headlights come on automatically - but to have the dash lights on you have to turn the switch.

i was driving without the dash lights on ...

a cop sped up next to me and flashed his spotlight at me. i looked over at him and gave him a 'what??' face ... he rolled down his window. my sister was riding with me and said,"roll down your window!"

"oh - right."

the cop shouted,"your tail lights aren't working."

"oh ... k ... thanks ... "

i turned into the safeway parking lot, turned the switch for the dash lights and had my sister get out and look. apparently the dash lights are connected to the tail lights. lesson learned - without being pulled over.

weird.

Ha, loved your title! I may have to write about the time I really WAS flashed. Except that's not exactly PG-13! Ick.

Nice! I was a little worried there by the title, but it all turned out great in the end.

Oh what a great line from "The Princess Bride"! That makes me miss my family and how much we used to quote it...

What a strange story. A cop pulled me over once because one of my brake lights wasn't working (or something like that), but the cop ended up being a friend who just wanted to scare me. :)
