Crusty’s Mysterious Brake Lights

The Puzzler

RAY: Crusty didn't pull anything off, really.

TOM: No, he didn't.

RAY: He just stepped on his brake pedal.

TOM: That's right. Because he wasn't stepping on it the other times.

RAY: He was stopping using his emergency brake, which of course, doesn't make the brake lights come on. Had he known he was being followed by the police, he would have used the emergency brake to slow and stop the car, and then he would have stepped on the brake as well. Who's our winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Sandy Hashima, from San Diego, California. Congratulations!
