The Knoxville Police department sent out a reminder on their Facebook page Thursday stating that flashlights should never be used in place of headlights in a vehicle.

Officials say a Sweetwater resident was pulled over twice in an 18 hour period for driving after dark with only flashlights used to light up the road. The flashlights were reportedly strapped in with a bungee cord attached to the vehicle's bumper.  The driver was first stopped by KPD in East Knoxville, then later by another officer in North Knoxville.

The driver was cited in both traffic stops for "Improper Headlights," "Violation of the State Registration Law" and "Driving Without Insurance," the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.
