Rode back up the driveway into the garage and David adjusted it some more, then I rode around again making a loop. I saw a cop on the other side of the neighborhood looping through... no big deal, it's legal, I was going slow and my bike isn't even that loud. I come up to our house and I'm getting ready to go up the driveway and the cop stops right next to me (on the wrong side of the road since they can do whatever they want) He asks what we are doing... basically just wanted to hassle me... whatever.

But what I can't get over is that before he drove off, he told me to be safe and not leave the neighborhood! WTF... I'm on a motor vehicle that is legal for road operation... how in the do you think you have the right to tell me to not leave the neighborhood???

Any of you ever experienced the same??
Probably just thought you were a newb and was trying to be nice.

However, yes, the statement of "don't leave the neighborhood" could easily be interpreted as a directive by a law enforcement officer. Granted, not one he can legally give, but a directive nonetheless.

Unless he attempts to prevent you from leaving the area, or detains you simply for leaving the neighborhood, I'd put that one down to him thinking you're a newb and he was trying to be nice.

WOW. Really?

File a complaint, it will teach him not to be sociable to his patrol area.
Then when he doesnt say hi and be careful, file another complaint that he was not sociable.

Oh , is this a case of damned if u do, or damned if u dont???
