I’m sorry you got pulled over, but you’re lucky that the officer let you off with a warning!
Getting a brake light fixed can cost anywhere from $20 to $150 on average. The price of getting brake lights fixed can vary based on a few different factors:
  • Car make
  • Car model
  • Parts needed
  • The repair shop you go to
You can replace your brake lights by yourself to save money, but a mechanic will often run diagnostic tests to see if there are any underlying problems with your brakes as well.
If your brake light is out because of an accident, your
car insurance
may help cover the costs of repairs. Collision coverage covers damage to your vehicle regardless of fault. However, if the light has gone out due to normal wear and tear, it will not be covered by your policy.
It’s important to have working brake lights to stay safe and avoid tickets. Having the right car insurance policy is also important for your financial and legal protection. Licensed insurance broker and comparison app
