Can you get a ticket for a headlight out?
In most states, it is required by law that headlights must be used from sunset to sunrise. It's also law that a motor vehicle (unless it's a motorcycle) must have two headlights. Therefore, if you have a headlight burned out, it is possible (and likely even probable) that you'll get pulled over.
