fix-it  
So, I'm spending the night at dzayde's place. She asked me to go to the store to pick up sponges so they can do dishes. I walked out to my car and said, "Oh crap, my headlights are on. OH Crap, my tail lights aren't on."

On the way back from the store, I was stopped at a light and glanced at the car behind me carefully. Cop.

I went through the light and waited for the flashing lights and promptly pulled over. She gave me a fix-it ticket for $10. I've found pulling over isn't as annoying for me when I know it's going to happen before it does. :)

One of my most annoying pullovers was a cop following me for quite awhile before figuring out something to stop me for. When he finally did hit the lights and pull me over, the first thing the twit said to me was: "Of course you know why I pulled you over, don't you?" To which I replied: "Umm I think I was going about 35. The speed limit here is (glancing at convenient sign right next to the car) 35. I really DON'T know." He then tells me that my license plate frame light was out and proceeds into the third degree questioning - give me your drivers' license, registration and proof of insurance; where are you coming from; where are you going; blah blah blah.
Sometimes I really hate badge-heavy bored cops.

I got pulled over in berkeley two weeks ago for missing a headlight. He saw the Kragen bag in the passenger seat and was very nice about it. Asked where I was going and coming from blah blah, told me to drive safely and make sure I get that fixed right away.

The white car's headlight/parking light switch failed about 6 months ago. I could tell it was dying, as it was getting very difficult to turn (melty internally). I got another switch from the junkyard for < $20 and installed it. It's easier to remove/install if you give in and pull the steering wheel.
