A couple of days ago i was pulled over by a police officer because i made an illegal right turn. Meaning i turned right and didnt merge into my closet lane. Now when the cop pulled me over i was about 4 blocks from where my offense accorded. Once pulled over the cop made a rasist remark. I didnt have my license because it was revoked as a juvenile for an unpaid fine. I thought i took care of everything in December 2014. I was unaware that i had to go back to DMV. So thats was a mistake on my part. I had a licenced driver there at the time and the towed the car . can they do any of this. ???
To answer what appears to be the question - yes he can pull you over later - much later than 4 blocks. There is no time limit on making a traffic stop as long as he has the correct legal basis - evidence to make the stop.
As for rest - the racist remark should be reported AFTER you have resolved the case and the fact that you had a licensed driver in the car is not relevant - you were still driving without a valid driver's license - If you correct that and bring in proof - the prosecutor will often just dismiss that charge.. good luck
Yes, as long as the cop says he saw you commit the violation, they don't have to pull you over immediately. If you didn't have a license, then that's another violation. Yes, they can tow the car, they are not under any obligation to allow someone else to drive it off (though they usually do let someone else drive it rather than tow it.)
