Cops Double Teaming on 610

While one is writing a ticket, the other is just ahead with a laser pulling over drivers that aren't observing the Move Over/Slow Down law

I got out of ticket once for this in Florida. Got pulled over doing 20 over the limit, definitely warranted a ticket. Some guy drove by, the cop saw him coming and signaled him to move over, but he didn't. He told me he was letting me off with a warning, ran to his car and pulled that same guy over a couple miles up the road. Cops take that stuff seriously for good reason.

If I were a cop I wouldn't want some d-bag that pulled over in the left shoulder on 610 to try and make his way across 4 lanes of traffic, plus an exit, plus the feeder to find a place to stop. Houston drivers are retards

Cell phones contribute to many accidents nowadays. I'm surprised Texas still hasn't passed a law for no cell phone use while driving yet.

It's a bit awkward when you're on a 2 lane road and the person pulled over by the cop decides to stop on the road. Going 15 on a 35 mph road drives me nuts. Nevertheless, I do it.

Florida was the first time I had heard of this law. I didnt move over, and my then GF freaked out. I was saying "I didnt know". Glad he didnt chase me down.

A lot of them are ex-military so I guess they deserve no respect

The tow truck laws NEED to be changed, and traffic laws need to be enforced with them. They think they are gods. They should be shown they are not.

When we heard the next screech and BANG behind us, he finally shut up and told me to move on. He now had something else to deal with.

I have no sympathy for patrol officers. If they were worth a then they would have moved up in the world and would be working homicide or the DUI/Drug task forces. They are the "minimum wage burger flipper" of the police world.
That guy didn't deserve much sympathy for sure. Some are better than others though. I've been pulled over by some decent patrol cops over the years that gave me some breaks. I've only been pulled over here in Houston once though in my almost 3 years of living here, so I can't speak for HPD.

Worthless Rat !

A real public service would be to drive their fat around and enforce the "move your car off the road when involved in a minor fender bender law". That would be a real public service.

new SB 510 says you must move over for tow truck drivers and TxDot vehicles. Here's a list of new laws for 2013....stay tuned for 2014 updates when we need more "safety".

Quote:
Below isn't a complete list of the new laws that are now in effect, but some you should know about:

HB 347 expands the current limitations on wireless communication device (cell phone) use in an active school crossing zone to include the property of a public elementary, middle, or junior high school for which a local authority has designated a school crossing zone. The use will only be restricted during the time a reduced speed limit is in effect for the school crossing zone. Further, it will not apply to vehicles that are stopped, or drivers using a hands-free device or making an emergency call.

HB 1174 amends current statute to increase the minimum fines for the misdemeanor offense of passing a stopped school bus loading or unloading children. The minimum fine increases from $200 to $500, and the maximum fine for such an offense increases from $1,000 to $1,250. The bill also enhances the penalty for a second or subsequent conviction of that offense committed within five years to a misdemeanor punishable by a minimum fine of $1,000 and a maximum fine of $2,000.

SB 181 allows a motor vehicle operator the option of using a wireless communication device (such as a cell phone) to display motor vehicle financial responsibility (proof of insurance) information as evidence of financial responsibility. The display does not constitute effective consent for a law enforcement officer, or any other person, to access the contents of the wireless communication device except to view the financial responsibility information. *This bill is effective immediately.

SB 510 requires drivers to move over or slow down (as required depending on the roadway) when approaching a stationary Texas Department of Transportation vehicle with its lights activated and not separated from the roadway by a traffic-control device. This provision expands the state's Move Over/Slow Down law, which already requires drivers to yield to tow trucks, police, fire and emergency vehicles. Violators would commit a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine of up to $200; punishable by a fine of $500 if property damage occurs; or a Class B misdemeanor if the violation results in bodily damage.

HB 2304 lowers the population requirement from 2.2 million to one million for counties where sheriffs or deputy sheriffs can be certified by DPS to enforce federal commercial motor vehicle regulations. This will open the opportunity to Bexar, Tarrant and Travis counties.

HB 625 clarifies that the penalty for operating a vehicle on a public highway without displaying the two license plates assigned to the vehicle is a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine not to exceed $200.

HB 3668 amends current statute to require the operator of a vehicle involved in an accident that results or is reasonably likely to result in the injury or death of a person to immediately determine whether a person is involved in the accident, and if so, whether the person requires aid, in addition to other existing statutory requirements.

SB 275 increases the penalty for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death of a person and failing to render aid from a third-degree felony to a second-degree felony. A second degree felony carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000, whereas a third degree felony carries a penalty of two to 10 years in prison and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.

HB 1284 increases the penalty for the offense of initiating, communicating or circulating a false report of an emergency (such as a bomb threat) involving an institution of higher education from a Class A misdemeanor to a state jail felony. *This bill is effective immediately.

HB 124 adds Salvia divinorum (unless unharvested and growing in its natural state) including all parts of the plant, seeds and extracts from a part of the plant to Penalty Group 3 of the Texas Controlled Substances Act.

HB 2637 provides that an individual fraudulently using identifying information to avoid registering as a offender to be punished at the next highest degree felony.

+1.......I've had some of them pass me at 70+ on West Little York where the speed limit is like 45mph, just to meet them up at the light waiting on it to turn green. I'm suprised they don't cause more accidents or get people killed. Nothing me off more about Houston than the freaking tow trucks.

So a lot = everyone? Thanks teacher

Do you respect any cops? Seems you don't. You mad bro?
