This is a good time to learn about Idaho and the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. A police officer has been endowed with a limited amount of discretion. He is not required to ticket someone for the "reasonable suspicion" reason that he pulled him over for, but he should if he wants...View More
Most states respect other states' laws, as long as judgments were rendered with die process. VA issued you a valid DL for 5 minutes. That's actually a much shorter time than I would have guessed, with high speed computers and other means of transmission. Once VA discovered your DL status...View More
Said reason for traffic stop was bad tail light. Searched my vehicle and arrested me for possession. Police officer lied. My break/tail lights weren't out. They work just as they should. Can I get my possession case dismissed on ground for unlawful traffic stop?
Your questions raise more questions. What time of the day? Night? was the stop? Were you driving in a "bad neighborhood?" Was a drug dog used? From the time your car got turned off after the stop, how long did it take the drug dog to get there?
He said I was going 61 in a 40 in the hills, I passed him on a blind corner as I was slowing down coming around the corner.As I pull over, I grab my wallet from the center cup holder for my license.

Idaho doesn't have such a statute. An "assault" is the reasonable fear of a "battery." A "battery" is an "unlawful touching." If you touch another person against their will, you may be charged with "battery." If you use an automobile to...View More
Pleading guilty to not having insurance WILL suspend your DL. But all you need to do to get permission to drive is prove that you now have insurance. The plates is an infraction and is under $100 fine. Good luck!
Schoolbus-to-RV/Van conversion. ID and IA laws say, "...shall be painted a color other than national school bus glossy yellow...". Does that mean every TRACE of yellow covered, or would it be legal to paint the bulk of the bus, say, blue (e.g., below the windows)? Ref:... View More
As I read the statute you refer to I think it depends on HOW different your paint job looks from the original yellow. Every cop has discretion to or not to make a big deal, not to write a ticket, or to write one and even if you're technically correct, you'll still be sorry if you get a...View More
