I had a headlight out back in January. I bought a new one from the auto parts store on the way home, but it was so cold I couldn’t be bothered to change it. Next night, I was stopped by a city policeman. He said “license and insurance card.” Nope, didn’t want to see my registration. I thought that odd. Never had that asked for before. Fortunately for me, I had the new light in the car and explained that it was too cold for me to change it. He let me go.
Two days ago, my age 25 son got stopped for “high beams” in the same town. At 5:45 AM. I think the cop was just bored and needed some work. He asked my kid for “license and proof of insurance.” No mention of registration.
This was Akron, Ohio.
Is this something new? Is it a local thing? Is this happening anywhere else in the US. Not that I think it’s a bad thing. Og knows there are too many uninsured motorists.
