My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Minnesota
I was stopped for "carrying a passenger" on my motorcycle. That is what it said on the citation in the notes. I have a very small motorcycle and the police officer considered it a moped even though it has a valid motorcycle license plate and I have a motorcycle endorsement. After I informed him of this, he instead gave me a ticket for riding on a sidewalk because I pulled into a driveway and turned onto the sidewalk a few feet so I would be off of the street while talking to the officer as it was on city streets. The law is very clear that my vehicle is considered a motorcycle here in Minnesota, and I was wondering if it was lawful for him to pull me over in the first place leading to the other citation that wouldn't have happened if he hadn't pulled me over.
