I know that an aftermarket exhaust can get you pulled over, and that the police can ask you to pop the hood to check for any aftermarket/off road parts that may be installed.
So my questions are these: What would happen to anyone who refuses to pop the hood for a visual inspection?
Would they be arrested and the car impounded?
What if the Officer mistakes a stock/OEM exhaust and asks you to pop the hood even after you state that you don't have a modified exhaust, do you still have to pop the hood?
Don't get me wrong, its not worth getting arrested over a ref ticket, I am just trying to figure out what my rights are.
