trouble in elgin

So yeah, I got pulled over for the first time today. In Elgin, no less. About thirty minutes from my final destination (Austin). I pulled up on the left side of a cop at a stop light. Of course I was a little nervous, but I tried my best to not be myself. You speeding or illegal traffic violation type stuff. When the light turned green I took off quicker than the officer did and immediately after I saw flashing lights behind me. I said "aww shit" (when in Elgin...) and started to pull over.

When the cop came up to my window it was already down and I had my hands on the steering wheel. [Note: Most wouldn't believe I actually learned something in driver's ed. But I did.] I handed him my license and he went back to his car to run it. He came back and I noticed he was writing a ticket. I honestly didn't think I had done anything wrong. Never would I have guessed that I would be pulled over for not having a front license plate. So that's probably why it happened.

Oh, and my registration sticker was out.
