If you're nervous when you get pulled over by a cop, you're not alone. Even though you may not have done anything wrong, it's easy to still end up feeling guilty about something. Your jitters may get worse if you happen to spot the policeman walking towards you in the review mirror, only for him to suddenly stop and tap your taillight.
Why do cops do that? Well, he wasn't trying to bust your light so he could fill his quota of traffic tickets! He also probably wasn't expecting to hear a return tap from someone that you may have locked inside your trunk.
It may seem like just a little tap, but when an officer touches a taillight, it has more meaning than most people realize.
