TIP OF THE WEEK
"It is the driver's responsibility to make sure that the vehicle he or she is driving has all of the equipment functioning correctly, the registration valid, the inspection up-to-date, and the insurance valid. If you are stopped for a traffic violation and any of these items are out of compliance with the law, the driver can be cited, not the owner of the car. The same is true if you wear someone else's pants. You are responsible for everything inside the pockets of those pants and you will go to jail if you are found in possession of contraband, not the owner of the pants."
