We have seen an increase in the number of traffic tickets being issued in Greeley and Weld County, including tickets for Careless Driving and Reckless Driving. I recently read a ridiculous story where a man, who had decorated his car with Christmas lights, was ticketed for improper lighting on his car. I mean, what kind of Grinch would ticket a man for having Christmas spirit? Law enforcement claimed that the Christmas lights were a safety hazard. What’s next? People getting tickets for putting the reindeer antlers and red nose on their car?
