    Reason to pull over

    Do you actually need a reason to pull someone over? If you suspect that they may have something illegal in the vehicle for example can you just pull them over?
    "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give"
    Sir Winston Churchill

    "...what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed." LTC Dave Grossman

    All that is needed is reasonable suspicion to stop a vehicle.

    Articulable facts concerning contraband can permit a stop also, without a traffic infraction.

    Yes, we need a reason, but that could be almost anything. Reasonable suspicion to stop someone is a lot less than the probable cause necessary for an arrest. If we have an articulable reason for suspecting illegal activity, that is enough to stop them and investigate further.

    In the UK a police officer in uniform can stop anyone whilst driving to request to see their documents as it is an offence not to carry them.

    I *think* it's the same way in Canada, where the original poster was from.
    Not 100% sure.

    Our Vehicle Code book is very thick, the equipment regulations are found in 4 thicker volumes. If I follow someone for a while, I'll find a lawful reason to stop them.

    I believe TN Highway Patrol can stop someone to check for a license without an infraction, but we can't. They can also conduct light/brake inspections.

    My favorite was the DWI I caught after pulling him over for having his rear license plate obscured (with snow). He he he. There was actually a little more to the story... some people complained that he was trying to fight with them and they'd seen an open container in his truck. But of course, when he asked me why I pulled him over I told him it was for the obscured plate. :D

    So you lied? Did you also falsify your report? Did it go to court, and did you perjure yourself? :eek:

    Yeah, I lied to the suspect so he wouldn't get pissed at my complainants. I did not falsify my report, thank you. We're allowed to lie to suspects. And pulling him over for his obscured plate is legal to.

    We can. :p It's actually written into the legislation that we can stop to check for licences and random breath tests. We don't have to see them do anything wrong, we can quite literaly pick people out at random if we choose to.

    It's great. I'm sure you can always find something if you have someone in front of you, you want to pull over, but it's much better when I don'thave to think about that.

    If you rob a gas station, you're only going to get about $100, but I get to see a K9 dog use your arm as a chew toy. For all I care you can keep the $100.
