The best way to avoid getting pulled over for a failing or broken tail light, in Denver or anywhere, is to keep an on eye your lights regularly and perform maintenance as needed.
One thing to watch is your tail light lens—the red covering that goes over the light bulb in your taillight. The red covering is what gives your brake lights the color they need to attract the attention of the driver behind you.
Should that cover become broken, your brake lights will appear white. This will likely confuse those following you and could end up causing a rear-end collision.
Moreover, if your brake light cover is cracked or broken, water can seep into the light itself, causing a short. Thus, it's very important to check both the cover and the bulb itself regularly to make sure that everything is in order.
