Imagine this scenario. You're on your way to Wizard World comic con dressed as your favorite action hero when you see a flashing blue light in your rear view mirror.  You pull over and the officer tells you to get out of your car. So, you're standing there in your spandex hero suit complete with cape wondering what you did.

It might not be what you did. It might be something you didn't do - like failing to do timely auto repairs.

Rich White, executive director of the nonprofit Car Care Council, explains, "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. 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, the council says, 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.

Among the auto repairs that the council recommends drivers address right away because 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.
  • 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.
