Are your brake lights working? Do drivers seem to be charging your rear bumper? Before you get a ticket, or worse, you should give the brake lights a test. But you’re all alone, how can you do it? You could ask your retired next door neighbor, but you have other plans for the next 3 hours of your life. Here is your answer, and it’s simple.
All you need is a broomstick. Any removable broomstick will do, or mop handle, or anything of similar length. You can even use the whole broom if you’re ok with the business end being in your car seat!
Take one end of the stick and press the brake pedal, then prop the other end firmly against the seat cushion. Now walk around back and check your brake lights!
