Did you know you can get pulled over for having an air freshener dangling from your rearview mirror? It’s true, and now one local man is filing a complaint over it.
Ricardo Kerns, of Oxon Hill, Md., told News4′s Darcy Spencer that a D.C. police officer pulled him over on 1st Street SW because he had an air freshener hanging on his rear-view mirror.
Kerns said he didn’t allow the officer to search his vehicle, but he ended up with a $35 ticket for “objects hanging as to obstruct view.”
He also received an $800 fine for driving without proper insurance and failure to prove he had insurance. He said he does have insurance, but he was driving a new car and couldn’t show proof.
D.C. Police tell us it is a violation to have an air freshener on your rear view mirror, and you can be ticketed for it.
