There's plenty of states where having ANYTHING hanging from the review mirror is illegal because it obstructs the driver's view, and if it's shiny or bright it can distract other drivers. Then again he may have nothing hanging at all. It's just one of those laws that's like jay-walking, everyone does it, but it rarely get ticketed. Obviously the cop was looking to pull someone over for whatever bullcrap reason. I had a friend get ticketed for doing a 48 in a 45 zone. Someone was trying to make a quota I think. I've passed cops regularly doing 4-5 over and never think twice they'll pull me over because you would think it's not worth the time to pull over someone doing 5 over vs. someone doing 10 over that's probably 5 minutes behind me.

Well, cops won't bother with you if you're doing less then five over the speed limit. Radar is not reliable. It's off by two to three MPH and you could easily beat a ticket like that in court. Cops know this, and judges/clerks/magistrate's know this.

Unless they were using lidar. Then you're ****ed.

i'm guessing that's what i was referring to? my guess is that the cops don't say nothin' until situations like this, when they wanna racial profile . that way they technically have a legitimate reason to pull you over .

I had a similar incident happen where I got guns pulled on me and my buddy, both of us searched, and my car searched for an air freshener. I was furious at first, but why they didn't find anything of interest they had to let us go, and you could see that they were sad little policeman officers.
