I hate it when I get pulled over for a burned out light on my vehicle and getting a ticket. After I get the light replaced I have to prove to the court system that I’ve replaced the light in order to get the ticket dismissed.

Some disasters have a local or regional zone and impacted radius. Some are larger in scope and suck in other stable areas like a spiraling vortex.
