Who do you report a car on the road with no working brake lights or only one brake light?
Ifyou're on the road behind them, get their license plate number and the make, model and color of the car, then call 911 to report them. If it's someone you know, then you can call your local police department or Sheriff's office to report this vehicle. You need to report this vehicle, whether you know the driver or not; you may very well save someone's life. You won't have to give your name, so you can do it anonymously.

Why do the brakes lock on a lightly loaded truck with a particular brake pressure than a heavier one?
The brakes are designed to handle that truck at the loaded weight - when under that weight, a bit more finesse needs to be used when braking.
Method 1 Downshifting to Stop Turn your hazard lights on to warn other drivers. Take your foot off the gas and/or turn off the cruise control. Shift into a lower gear. Pull over to the side of the road. Pump the brakes to try to stop. Try the emergency (parking) brake at lower speeds.
it goes in a circle. one way goes, then the one too the left and then the one to its left and so on. all lanes go in one way. i forgot to say that.

In New Hampshire where two side roads with no yellow lines meet at a road with a double yellow line that goes straight through and there are no stop or yield signs who has the right of way?
Realistically you should never assume anyone has the right of way at any intersection. Just because a vehicle approaching from a side road has a red light doesn't mean that they will stop. Always keep an eye on cars approaching the same intersection as you and be prepared to yield even if you kno...

What would cause the running or tail lights on your 1994 Camry not to work while the head lights brake lights and turning signal lights work?
There is a relay in the trunk (left hand side wall) that may have been burnt. You may want to check this out...had the same problem with my 1992 Camry.....different year of course. The wires to the running lights were broken and exposed, caused a short, which in turn burnt the relay in the trunk.
No fluid, no pressure.You have an emergency brake (also known as a parking brake), but it's often too weak to really stop the car in an emergency.So if you or your mechanic spot a brake fluid leak, it's a big deal.You should fix it immediately, and you should not drive it until it is fixed.
Why does the force of gravity do work on a car rolling down a hill but no work when it rolls along a level part of the road?
This is a basic physics situation. Gravity is a perpendicular force to the earth's surface, or a force that is directed to the earth's center. So when a car is on perfectly level ground it will not move. But when on a hill or any considerable incline it will roll (if the car is not hindered by yo...

Assuming I understand your question:The brakes are worn on one side because they are only or primarily working on that side. This should cause the car to pull toward that side when braking.
If the fuses and bulbs are okay you may have a bad signal switch also known as a multifunction switch.
Check the rear brakes. Pull the drums/brake pads and check the brakes for cracking. Take it to a tire shop and ask them to pull the rear tires off the rims to check for heat damage. If the tire has turned grey where it touches the rim, it has been damaged and shouldn't be used any longer.
If you are current on your payments can the car dealership who sold you the car repo it or is the bank that is financing the vehicle the only one who can do that?
The bank/finance company. The dealer has already been paid for the vehicle
more than likely some of the wires are loose
YES! They will get the proper permission they need, because what they are doing is perfectly legal. Contact the lender and work something out. They will get the car sooner or later and you will pay dearly.
your brakes are sticking need servicing asap

95 Olds Achieva No power to starter Only thing working is headlights and interior lights by turning on manually?

What is the problem when head lights are on and the tail lights dont work but the brake lights work?
If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires.

A car is driving on a flat road When the driver hits the brakes the car slows down and stops What would happen if there were no friction?
If you're asking in the theoretical sense as in there were no friction at all in the universe then the car would never stop. Then again if that were the case then the car would have a hard time to move in the first place.
Power brakes are a system of hydraulics used to slow down or stop most motor vehicles.It uses a combination of mechanical components to multiply the force applied to the brake pedal by the driver into enough force to actuate the brakes and stop a vehicle that can weigh several tons.
Check the bulbs - they are double filamented with the smaller being for the stop lights Check the fuse Check the operation of the stop light switch usually at the upper end of the brake pedal under the dash
Driving with low oil pressure or low oil in the system can ruin the vehicle's engine, completely breaking the motor.If you notice the oil light on while you are driving or while the car is running, you should stop driving and have this problem addressed as soon as possible.
brakes and running lights have separate fuses. check the fusethen check the brake light switch under the dash

In most new cars the parking brake light is also activated when the linings of your brakes wear out.
You step on the brake when the directional is on and all the lights flash is there a short in the lights or the fuse box?
If you have a plug for trailer lghts it is probably a short circuit in the socket.

What is wrong with your car if it only starts after sitting for a while...It takes me back and forth to work everyday with no problem but when running errands won't start after the 2nd or 3rd place?
Assuming the fluid levels are normal then it is most likely the starter is getting too hot from start and stop use.

It is a fake brake! If you are riding on a flat dry surface it works, but gets super hot. If you are riding on a hill or wet surface it just doesn't work. Wrote to MGP about this. They replied with a picture of the safety sticker which says the scooter should not be used in the wet or on hills. T...
the person driving the car you are resonsible for making shure everything is working while u are driving wether its your car or not..
Bad Switch: One common reason for the Parking Brake light to stay on is a failing or failed switch.This can be checked easily by jiggling the handle after it is down.If the light turns off (or turns off and then back on), the switch is the most likely culprit and will need to be replaced.
faulty switch under pedal arm most likely-they are adjustable. try lifting pedal by hand and have someone check if they are off, if that fails, adjust to move button further away from arm

Why do the brake and signal lights work but the running lights not work on ford e-350 superduty cargo van?
If all the running lights (front & back) are not working I'd start by checking the fuses then onto the headlight switch
A simple first step would be to check the fuses to these lights, then go from there.
If you are the rightful owner of the car, you could file for lost title. Otherwise, I'm not sure it would be legal. If you default on your loan, without a title the lien holder would have a difficult time collecting

1988 Toyota pickup with no low beams and only High beams when the switch is pulled forward Also the high beam indicator is always on when turning the headlights on yet no lights are actually on How ca?
First double check the bulbs to be sure they are good then I would suspect the high/low beam switch or the headlight switch is at fault.
1993 Honda Civic hatchback that you believe was stolen with a shaved key you got the car back and now the parking lights brake lights and dash lights stay on even with the engine off What is the cause?
Those systems you mentioned will work normally with the engine off, if you are saying that you cannot shut them off at all then the multi function switch for the lights is faulty or damaged.
you just have to look at the road. you should already know, because you have to turn the wheel anyway. if you have to turn, it is curved. if u turn often, it is zizzag

If the car merging onto a road in front of you was beyond the Yield sign and slammed on their brakes Who is at fault?
Sounds like you rear-ended them. Are you the same person who had the driver ahead "Brake aggressively" a couple of weeks ago? If the front of your car strikes the back of another and they are not in reverse, 99.99% of the time you are at fault.
Would a person who puts sirens and light beacons on their car for no apparent reason be considered a nutcase or an egomaniac?
Could they possibly be a firefighter? Local volunteer firefighters in Canada have such things in their car.
