A Vancouver driver has been slapped with a hefty fine for driving without insurance, and using flashlights for headlights and taillights.
The driver was initially stopped for transporting an insecure load in their Ford pick-up truck, according to Sgt. Mark Christensen with the Vancouver police.
But through further examination, Christensen said he also found four flashlights being used in place of proper bulb-powered headlights and taillights.
The driver, who Christensen said had failed to comply with previous inspection orders, also didn’t have insurance – a requirement of B.C.’s Motor Vehicle Act.
The truck was impounded and the driver was fined $1,920.
