Examples of reasonable articulable suspicion justifying the stop of a motor vehicle in Maine
-In State v. Cusack, 649 A.2d 16 (Me. 1994) the Law Court found driving 15 mph below the posted speed limit, repeated drifting, and the time of morning (3:00) did provide reasonable suspicion to justify a stop.
-In State v. Pelleiter, 541 A.2d 1296 (Me. 1988) the Law Court found an officer's observance of the defendant crossing over the center line 3 times and drifting onto the shoulder once was sufficient to establish reasonable suspicion.
-In State v. Carnevlale, 598 A.2d 746 (Me. 1991) reasonable suspicion was found when the police officer observed the driver make a slow weave onto the center line 3 times while fluctuating his speed between 35 and 40 mph in a 45 mph zone.
