If you feel as though you came to a complete stop contest the ticket.

You think it is harrassment? You're entitled to your opinion.

Also, all officers have Arbitrator running (camera) in thier vehicles and they automatically cut on when they hit the siren/lights. They are constantly recording and when the siren/lights are hit they get the entire minute before hitting the siren/lights. If an officer hits the lights and then turns off the camera immediately there will be a video clip for 1:01.

The way I have seen things work in charlotte is the cop is never disputed by the judge. The cop says "He did it" The judge says..'guilty". They dont have to have no camera or speed gun to prove anything,

I agree, I've seen it many times..

Unless you have a lawyer.. Which is going to cost you as well.. but saves the points on your license.

And many times the officer doesn't turn on the lights immediately. So usually they don't have the actual incident recorded.. By design? hmmm...

As far as I know, NC is not yet California.

If this is actually the law in California (and not internet legend) I think this is absolutely nuts!!

So how often are you in court where you see this take place?

That is incorrect.

See this is what happens when random, anonymous people can sit behind a computer and type whatever they want. Blatant lies and misinformation come out, causing even more dislike & distrust for people such as police officers.

You all are free to say what you want, even if it is extremely inaccurate.

I'm going to assume you are both joking, because no reasonable person would believe what either of you posted.

Yes I saw this in court and the guy even had a lawyer. Kid was given a ticket for 50 in a 25 and the lawyer pointed out that it was almost impossible for the little car to go from a stop to 50 mph in less than a block but cops said he did and thats the way it went. Judge wouldnt reduce it at all and the Kid had a very good lawyer too and explained how they dont have to have a speed gun or camera...I dont BS my man

I can't say if its actually the law or not, but I was taught the 3 second rule when I learned to drive in Missouri. Its really just to give you enough time to look both ways (left and right, not just left) to make sure the road is clear.

If I come up to a stop sign, and know that there is a cop watching me. I always make sure to make a good long stop. I don't want there to be any doubt about making a full and complete stop.

Sorry top tell you, but it is correct. I've seen it many times, and at least twice when pulled over myself. An officer pulls out behind, and the driver then sees the officer and slows down or whatever. The officer follows him 1/4 mile before turning on the lights.

I was driving behind 3 other cars, we were all moving from one location to a friends house. I was last in line. We were making a left at a lighted intersection and I caught it yellow, so I sped up a little to get through. In my truck I have locking rear differential so sometimes when I make a turn, the outside wheel will squeal a bit. The officer pulled out behind me and followed for about a 1/4 mile before pulling me over. Then writes me a ticket. In court I explained the locking rear differential, the officer said I was fishtailing through the intersection. I had a witness with me, and the officers camera didn't get the incident. His word against ours, his testimony was considered the only real truth. He lied.. And I feel like the delay to turn on the lights was only to assure his testimony would be the only evidence.

I couldn't tell you how many times I've seen the delay to turn on the lights. And I also hear that it's illegal for some reason to record the interaction with police officers yourself..

I told the officer that I had stopped looked right at him and the pulled away from the stop sign. He said in his opinion, I had not stopped long enough. Funny, I came back the same way 15 minutes later and two more people were being ticketed. I think this is a form of harassment to do this, it is not the same a running a stop sign but you still get a$191.00 ticket and 3 points.

Did you come to a complete stop or a rolling stop?
