  1. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Impeading Traffic Given Without Law Enforcement Seeing Alleged Violati

    Yeah, it's pretty much a matter of context when we use the term, "Arrest".
  2. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Impeading Traffic Given Without Law Enforcement Seeing Alleged Violati

    I suspect that if the vehicle were left in the roadway, and was cited for impeding, then the elements were observed by the officer. Although, CA DOES permit a private person's arrest even for...

    Re: Rights to Protect Property

    Sad as it is to admit, property crimes are not a priority in many jurisdictions today. Many county prosecutors have, in recent years - including the past few months - publicly proclaimed that they...

    Careless Driving: Re: Should I Fight This Case

    Was this before or after the party where you were caught holding the beer?

    In any event, as with the other case, you should probably consult an attorney. But, assuming the section cited is...

    Re: Rights to Protect Property

    Normal precautions do not always work. One of the most wealthy neighborhoods in Sacramento has regular intrusions and police response to a burglary in progress can take 30+ minutes. A cold burglary...

    Re: Rights to Protect Property

    Legally allowed and permitted by policy are entirely different matters. Seattle has been following a number of other jurisdictions in de-emphasizing property crimes and quality of life offenses for...
  7. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Impeading Traffic Given Without Law Enforcement Seeing Alleged Violati

    Let's start with this: What was the actual code section for which you were cited? Was it VC 22400(a)?

    22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block...

    Re: Identified As Driver Suspended

    Had the officer not demanded to see ID, then it may have been seen as a "casual" stop, or, as we refer to it in most places, a "consensual contact" (i.e. a NON detention). Even in this scenario, an...
  9. Parking and Access: Re: I Was Issued a Warning Citation from My Apartment Complex's Tow Company

    It does appear to say that it has to be moved within 96 hours, so, I'd suggest moving it at least once every 4 days.
  10. Parking and Access: Re: I Was Issued a Warning Citation from My Apartment Complex's Tow Company

    Check your lease agreement and see what it says about parking. If it requires you to move the car periodically, so be it. If not, then maybe you need to discuss this with management. Be thankful...

    Re: Identified As Driver Suspended

    You're right. It was not a "casual stop", if, by "casual stop" you mean that the contact is NOT a detention. Because, once the officer made a demand that he needed to see his license, the matter...

    Re: Identified As Driver Suspended

    Yep. The officer apparently stated, "“I know your [sic] suspended, I need to see your license”. And, lo and behold, the OP WAS suspended! Good call on the officer's part.

    Nothing untoward...
  13. Re: Driving on Foreign License California Ticket 12500(A)

    VC 12500(a) is almost universally filed as an infraction in Traffic Court. And,even if the officer did not indicate that it as "correctable," the court can make it so. Therefore, your boyfriend...

    It sounds as if he merely made the assumption that because he sent in his payment, all was good. I assume that in most - if not all other states - you receive written notice of a cleared suspension...

    Re: Identified As Driver Suspended

    Clearly, the officer knew you were suspended. He made contact, said he knew who you were and you were suspended. You admit the officer was correct and that you WERE suspended. HOW he knew you were...

    Re: Identified As Driver Suspended

    In this case the OP was pumping gas and approached by the officer. No detention was necessary and all he had to do was ask if he was the R/O and his license status.

    And, how viable a detention...

    Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Copy of Safeway's Loss Prevention Policy

    Did he use force to escape the detention? Or, did he use force to escape a detention WITH stolen property? The first might simply be battery while the latter could be robbery.

    If the officer's statement has been submitted, and the court will allow you to see the file, yes. You can always go to the court and ask.
