Police Report: Stalker or Cheapskate?

 (Actual items from the local police record.)

Traffic stop: at 1:15 am., a Rindge resident driving east on Route 119 from Fitzwilliam called police on her cellphone to report she was being followed by a white van. The van's lights were going off and on and the driver was at times tailgating her and then backing off, and she was alarmed. Police responded and stopped the van on Route 119. Police determined the driver…was having electrical problems that caused the van's lights to go off and on when he hit frost heaves on the road. The man said when that happened, he would move up close to the car in front of him so he could follow the road using that car's headlights. He would back off, he said, when his lights came back on. Police issued him a warning for driving with defective equipment.

And by "equipment," they didn't necessarily mean the van.
