Um, no one? Jesse H said that could be a reason they would start arresting people, to "crack down". I just meant it would be easier to put up cones than have constables sitting by booths waiting to arrest bikers.

The constables are on the tollway for traffic enforcement anyway...they pull all vehicles over. You on the toll way much?

Okay after 7 pages no one has answered the very simple question I posed at the beginning, What will they charge you with? Supposedly there are people here who have received tickets and/or been threatened with arrest. So why is it such a difficult thing to say what the charges were?

Do you understand the difference between arresting someone and writing a ticket?

How 'bout this?

Fair enough.

I still say if this is a regular occurrence and has happened to several people, someone should know.

Since I've never been stopped for it, and the poster that was pulled over by one LEO, that called HPD to have him jailed never specified, I'm not sure. If you're so certain that cops can't jail you for it, more power too you. Cops arrest people all the time for what they think is a crime. That's why courts interpret the law

You have serious reading comprehension issues. I NEVER SAID YOU CAN"T BE ARRESTED. I'm not advocating one way or the other. I'm saying I want to know what the charge is. I'm saying the poster's story about cutting a deal to not be arrested sounds like bs. Why would they call HPD when they have constables? Is motohouson really such a prevalent site that dropping its name can keep you from jail? DO you really not see any issues with the plausibility of this story? You don't think its possible he embellished just a bit?

i did call and see what the fine was, and it was like $275, since a cop stopped me vs the $35 for a pic of you running the tolls

i was thinking about paying for it, since time = $

I can't remember which LEO pulled the rider over, but the rider posted that whoever it was wanted him jailed, and called for HPD to jail him because the original LEO couldn't transport him for whatever reason. It was quite a long and detailed post from what I remember was a credible poster. What would be the point in making up a bullshit story like that?

The HPD cop was motorcycle friendly and somehow it came up "you better warn your buddies" and the rider came up with the offer of posting it on MH. You do realize there are HPD/MH members, right?

Seriously? Are you new to the internet? People make up all the time. That would be a mild story compared to some of the I've seen people try to pass off on the net.

If he's credible to you then that's great. That still doesn't answer as to what the charge would have been. I posted the question in Phan's sub-forum since I read on one of the threads about this that he got a guy off for this very thing.

I told you I was born last night. Uh, how long have you been a MH member, how long have I?

I don't know why you are so hung up on that. You do realize that there are other forums out there besides MH, right?
