Drivers Pull Over For Utah Woman, And She Didn’t Know Why
We all want to get to our destinations faster and quicker. If we had it our way, we could just bypass any traffic. Sadly, the only way to do that is be a first responder like a police officer or part of the fire department. Well, this Utah woman got a taste of what it was like for the roads to clear for her while she was commuting, and she doesn’t know why.
Pull Over, I’m Coming Through
A Salt Lake City woman had just purchased a new car for herself. She bought a black Dodge Charger. It was a used car, but new for her. When she drove off the lot and hit the roads, she noticed that people were pulling over to the side of the road as she passed them, according to KSL in Utah.
The woman was baffled as to why people were pulling over. What she didn’t realized was the used car she bought, the previous owner altered the fog lights so they flashed red and blue. It mirrored like a police cruiser, according to ABC 4 in Utah. A person on the roadway ended up taking a photo of the car and reported her to the police as someone impersonating a police officer. The police released that photo to warn others.
Whoops! I Had No Idea!
According to KSL.com, the woman finally figured it out and immediately called the Salt Lake police when she saw the photo they released of her car. She told them that she bought the car secondhand and had no clue the fog lights were altered to do that. She said the lights connect to an app that allows her to change the lights to any color she wanted.
Police said the woman only noticed when she was going to get lunch one day, and cars started pulling over for her again. The police say they think the woman had no intention of impersonating an officer. Since all this has happened, she has removed the lights from her car, articles report.
