My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
A friend of mine was pulled over and was issued a ticket and got her car impounded for not driving without a license. She was not told the reason behind the stop by the officer and did not violate any traffic laws and her car did not violate any vehicle codes. However, she does have a prior record for driving without a license and we suspect the officer may have known this by pulling up her file from her license plate. Now, does having a prior record of not driving without a license constitute as reasonable cause for the officer to pull her over in the first place? Advice from anyone with similiar experiences or legal expertise is welcomed. Thanks.
