LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) - Instead of fixing the broken tail light on his vehicle, a driver in Longmont got creative. Police released a photo showing what the driver did.

The driver duct taped a red Gatorade bottle where the tail light should be.

Police say that while they appreciate the ingenuity, they say the solution is not a legitimate one and encourage other drivers not to take the same action.

"Working tail lights prevent accidents," the police department said in a prepared statement.
