A driver recently received a $1,920 fine, after being caught using flashlights in replacement of headlights.

Vancouver Police Department officer Sgt. Mark Christensen tweeted about the incident Sunday night. 

He wrote that the officer originally pulled the driver over because he had an insecure load. But upon closer inspection, the officer noticed the man had taped flashlights to his vehicle for the headlights and tail lights.

The truck also didn’t have insurance and the driver had failed to comply with a previous inspection order, said Christensen.

The driver had his car impounded.
