You have to hand it to this guy for some good ol' Yankee ingenuity. But apparently it is NOT ok to use a cellphone flashlight as a headlight while driving on the highway.

According to a Maine State Police Instagram post, a man riding a scooter on the Maine Turnpike was pulled over for not having a headlight. It turns out that he had been riding the unregistered scooter all the way from New Bedford, Massachusetts, using the flashlight on his cellphone as a headlight. Yikes. I think most people would agree that wasn't a very bright decision!
