Did you know that if a rear taillight is out because of a cracked lens, the officer will look to determine if there is any oxidation or rust in the area which caused the broken rear tail light then ask you how long the light has been out and then gauge your answer for honesty by what he believed was the appropriate amount of time for the rust to form around the damage to the vehicle.
In my experience with police officers handling traffic matters, your credibility in being honest with the officer will help you enormously at the "window". In short, the more honest you are and candid, the better your chances of an "adjustment" at the window. Stay tuned for more interesting details from this blog.
