A Washington State Patrol officer pulled over a motorist on I-90 near North Bend one November evening after noticing the vehicle’s “super dim” headlights, patrol spokesman Rick Johnson told CNN. 

Closer inspection revealed the unnamed driver had duct-taped flashlights to the front of his vehicle to replace the headlights, which had been damaged in a crash. Flashlights-as-headlights are illegal in Washington (as they are in any state) because they don’t provide enough brightness, Johnson said, adding that the driver also had a suspended license.
