Ensure your vehicle is inspected, insured, and registered.
No, it's not your imagination: The lists of traffic summonses in the American Journal has gotten longer lately. I assume it has something to do with the Westbrook Police assigning one of its officers exclusively to the traffic beat, but I'm not sure.
Nevertheless, the aforementioned offenses are the most common ways to get yourself in trouble and to lighten your wallet. So save yourself some money and get these things done before you have to pay for inspection/insurance/registration and a fine.
