The traffic code of the state of Alabama, like all traffic codes, is based on the legal theory of "strict liability." That means no intent on part of the motorist is required in order to obtain a conviciton. If you were in violation of the traffic code, that may be sufficient for the prosecution to obtain a conviction. However, consistent with Constitutional law, before a motorist may be stopped (or "seized" as the term is used in Fourth Amendment law), there must be at least a 'reasonable suspicion' of a violation. See, Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968). A law enforcement officer cannot as a matter of law simply stop an individual without at least some legally recognized level of 'reasonable suspicion.' Whether or not the officer had that requisite degree of reasonable suspicion is a question of law for the trial court to decide.
