I'm in Oregon. Yesterday after work I got pulled over and cited by a police officer because my motorcycle's tail light wasn't working. I discovered 10 minutes later that this was because the bulb was burned out (it's an old motorcycle) so I bought some new bulbs and now it works fine. The light was working fine that morning but at some point during the day it must have burnt out. The fine on the citation is $110, so my question is, do I really have to pay such a hefty fine just because a bulb was out?? ThanksThanks for the responses. I talked with the clerk today and she told me that if I brought my fixed bike in, and had a police officer inspect it, the charge would be dismissed but still with a fee of $25. Still, that's much better than $110!
