In People v. Russum (41 AD2d 506, 507, 344 NYS2d 103, 104 ), police officers stopped defendant's automobile, driven by him, because its taillight was not lit.
Unfortunately the record is silent as to the number of taillights on that vehicle, although, "defendant admitted that he had a defective tail light" (id.).
There the Appellate Division held that the trial judge correctly denied defendant's motion to suppress. (Id.)
