Does Recent Supreme Court Ruling Make it too Easy for Police to Make Traffic Stops based on Anonymous Tips - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
TicketKick is reminding motorists to drive carefully out there and avoid erratic movements! Especially in light of a recent Supreme Court ruling (Prado v. California) involving an anonymous caller who tipped of CHP about a possible drunk driver. The traffic stop made by California Highway Patrol officers (who had followed the truck for five miles without observing drunken or erratic driving) was decided to be reasonable and allowable based on the circumstances. The judges, disapproving of this decision warn law enforcement agencies follow closely Supreme Court judgments, and they will identify at once this new rule: So long as the anonymous caller identifies where the car is, anonymous claims of a single instance of possibly careless or reckless driving, called in to 911, will support a traffic stop.- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
