Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

I acknowledge your desire to help but I would suggest his best option is to ask for a reduced fine based on ability to pay. ? think we can agree too that when an officer doesn't know the answer, that he or she shouldn't pretend to know the answer. What the officer said placed pressure on my relativ...

Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

Maybe I was wrong or mis-read or Perhaps it is the title "Reducing fines: police stop car for no reason or made-up one Maybe it was too much trouble for you to read more than the sentence in the subject line, which must be condensed becaus...

Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

I'm afraid you're clutching at straws. You say that the officer clearly indicated that he knew the licence was expired at the time of the stop. That's his reason to pull the vehicle over. He would likely have been running random plates and got a hit which precipitated the stop but he then wanted to...

Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

I notice one thing. You were not there and are getting information second hand. Yet you are sure that the officer stopped for made up reason. Maybe your relative is not telling you everything. You call it a made up reason but the officer told him at the outset he was stopped for having an expired d...

Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

1) No, your relative should be able to renew their licence right away since theyve yet to be convicted of the offence. 2) It would be dependent on what type of software the officer had in his cruiser, what type of query was made and what databases were accessible at the time. Since the persons actu...

Re: Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up

Police are allowed to stop random vehicles to ensure drivers are licenced, insured, etc. If the officer knew your relatives licence was expired, that would certainly be more than enough reason to conduct a traffic stop. Its also perfectly normal for police to collect the drivers documents then retu...

Reducing fine: Police stop car for no reason or made-up one

A relative was driving his vehicle in a lawful manner, with a valid license sticker and insurance, when he was pulled over by a police officer, who claimed his license was expired. Sure enough, the license was expired. The officer then said he needed to check if there was any suspension on the licen...
