You've seen them. You know you have. Maybe you have even driven one. I am talking about those cars with the red cellophane stuck on with duct tape to the place where a tail light cover once was. In most states, you can get a ticket for riding around with a candy wrapper over your tail light. But there is a way to make a broken light cover street legal and avoid getting a ticket. Just go to your local auto parts store and buy a special red or orange tape that is designed specifically for fixing broken tail light covers…and keeping you in compliance with the law.
