Ignore These Vehicle Repairs and You May Get Pulled Over




Many drivers may feel that they don't have the time or money to address vehicle repairs immediately, but beware that ignoring some repairs can get you pulled over and even ticketed, says the Car Care Council.



"Ignoring certain vehicle repairs may seem to save money in the short term but can lead to extra costs, such as fines or 'fix-it' tickets, if these problems are not taken care of when they arise," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "In some jurisdictions, car owners may even lose their license for certain violations. A few dollars spent on simple vehicle repairs can help avoid trouble with the law."



While a vehicle is in operation, traffic laws require that certain equipment is properly installed and functioning correctly, including brakes, headlights, turn signals, mirrors, windshields and safety belts, to name a few.



The Car Care Council recommends that drivers address these repairs right away as they present public safety concerns that can earn drivers a traffic ticket on top of a repair bill.




  • Non-functioning turn signals and headlights or taillights that are cracked or broken. Most states require vehicles to have functioning turn signals as well as two functioning headlights and taillights. Taillights must illuminate red; if a taillight is cracked, it can give off a white light, which is also typically a traffic violation.

  • Cracked windshield. If a windshield is cracked, discolored or tinted in a way that obstructs vision, drivers may get ticketed and fined. In some states, vehicle modifications, such as tinted windows, are prohibited.

  • License plates are unreadable. If the license plate light is out or if the plate is otherwise unreadable, drivers may be pulled over. In some states this includes clear or tinted plastic license plate covers.

  • Loud exhaust system. A defective exhaust system that is too loud, either because it has been modified or because it needs repairs, can be cause for a ticket. What is considered loud depends on the state.

Just want to extend a BIG thank you to Dave and the entire crew at Sunset Auto for their excellent work on my 2002 Toyota Tundra.

Your vehicle will definitely be in good hands.

At 67 years old I have experienced my fair share of car dealerships and auto repair. I have been using Sunset Auto Imports for over 6 years and it is fair to say they are by far the most professional and most important..... "trustworthy" auto repair shop I have ever experienced. I have every confidence in their expert advice and service and highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional auto repair!!!!!!!!!

Best auto service I've ever had. I can depend on there recommendations and feel they do a very good job with customer service. Have recommended Sunset Auto Service to many and will continue to do so. I feel they are honest and good at giving you a heads up on services that may be needed in the future.

My wife and I choose to travel nearly 25 miles to get to Sunset Auto. We've tried other mechanic shops closer to where we live, but time and again, only Sunset has proven trustworthy and dependable. Other shops routinely "cry wolf", urging expenditures that need to be made NOW. After getting a second opinion from Sunset about the costly recommendation, it becomes apparent that the other shop is just trying to make a buck off scaring us into thinking that our cars are going to explode. When we do spend 3 or 4 figures on a repair at Sunset, we are confident that the work was warranted and that it was done correctly. They're friendly, straightforward, and I'd not hesitate to recommend them. I only wish they were located closer to the west side of town!!!

My son said I couldn't go anywhere else so I took my car there. What a great experience. They were friendly and their integrity was beyond reproach. They exceeded my every expectation. My car is running perfectly and I am not completely broke.

We have a 94 Toyota pickup that had radiator, steering and brake issues. Dave and the mechanics at Sunset Auto had it diagnosed and repaired in two days. Price was fair and I like the two year warranty, that?s pretty rare anymore.
