My question involves vehicle maintenance laws for the State of: CALIFORNIA
Interestingly enuff. I got pulled over for being profiled. Here goes:
The officer that pulled me over was on the opposite traffic of a major thoroughway in Elk Grove, CA (January 28th, clear day, about 10:30ish) heading to Salinas. I actually saw the moto-officer give me a once over on the other side traffic. He actually had to go about 1/8 mile to make a U-turn due to the fact that there is an island. I looked in my rear view a minute later and there are the red and blues..... Yes.. finally I've been waiting...
Anyways, I was neither speeding, because I don't speed on this particular road since I know it's a good trap. And I'm not in a hurry.
So he pulls me over because my car was too low, proceeds to measure to the 'headlight filament' (light source, according to the code). In reality, I think he gave me this ticket because of the fact that he didn't find anything wrong with me.
1994 honda accord, with stock rims
lowered approx 1.5 inches (unmodified eibach lowering springs)
Ha!!!! Can u say profiled. Given I am a Filipino, but I'm also in my mid 30s... Shame what I have to go through, just to drive 4 hours to do a job.. And a cop wastes my time with a 'headlight too low' ticket....
I understand that Elk Grove has diminished in the past few years, what with all the Asian related crimes and all that... But for me, I have no respect for this particular police officer. And being I'm a loud mouth and all, (not when I was getting pulled over), I will make a statement to all agencies, council persons, any one that can really bring about TRUE JUSTICE.
I guess the POLICE officer was just doing his job. And I guess part of that job is to profile for Asian people that have lowered Japanese cars that are going on or below the speed limit.
My question is, IS THIS A FIX IT TICKET??
He didn't mention a,b,c or anything else on the ticket....
Nor did he check I (infraction) or M(misdeamor).
