Today's hypothetical - best answer wins $100
Consider the following scenarios and determine whether the officer had
legal grounds for stopping the vehicle, and explain why:
#1: Officer stops vehicle because he believes the brake lights are not
working. It turns out that the officer is mistaken, and there is no problem
with the brake lights.
#2: Officer stops vehicle because he believes the temporary license plate
should be in the license plate holder rather than in the rear window.
It turns out that the officer is mistaken and that the temporary license
plate is legally displayed.
#3: Officer stops vehicle going 55mph for speeding, because he believes
the speed limit in the area is less than 55pmh. However, the officer did
not know what the posted speed limit actually was.
