WSP Says Bah Humbug to Christmas Lights on Your Car: It’s Illegal
Don't Get Lit and Drive. Lit-erally.
It was not the most wonderful time of the year for a certain Snohomish County driver who was pulled over on Monday by the Washington State Patrol for illegal lighting on the SUV's roof rack.
I guess cheesy antlers covering antennas, wreaths on the front grill and strategically placed Rudolph red noses won't get a lump of coal in your stocking, nor a ticket, but the lights, especially the blinking lights, now that's a distraction you and the WSP are going to have to discuss.
Even though the traffic stop was Grinch-like, the trooper reportedly "doesn’t have a heart two sizes too small & gave the driver a warning."
After the trooper's tweet was posted, it got many retweets and replies, including this one.
