That might be fair idea.  On the other hand, a broken tail light will not allow a cop to search your vehicle.  The only legal way a cop can search your car is if he has reasonable suspicion to think there's something illegal inside your car (doesn't apply to broken tail light) or you give them consent to search.  Usually what happens is a suspicious cop will say "do you mind if I search your trunk/car?" and the intimidated people who don't know their rights will say "sure" and thus give consent.

Having a guy pull you over who doesn't have a gun would probably make things safer.

Yeah cops can and do cook up all kinds of b.s probable causes after the fact.
