Ok So Today i got a letter in the mail telling me i have lost my lisence........Now right Away i am thinking WTF last time i got pulled over was 3 months ago what took them so long? But the upside is i can fight any of the charges leading up to me losing my lisence in court. But the big thing is do i have a chance? I will give you my case for 1 of my bullshit pull overs

Friday night I am driving my drunk friends home on a cold november ( only reason i gave them the damn drive was so they would not freeze to death) Then i see the flashing red and blue lights in the back ground I of course pull off and thinkg WTF did i do? Cop comes up to the window and asks me for my Lisence I ask him why he pulled me over he said GIVE ME THE LISENCE ( SO he pulled me over for no god damn reason) I tell him the store of how i was driving my friends home (both 19 so both legally aload to drink) downside? I am driving after 12 MIDNIGHT which in nova scotia is againest the law for newly lisenced drivers So i get a 450 dollar fine and 2 points on my lisence (if that didn't happen i would still have it) So my question is can i fight it in court that

A) HE PULLED ME OVER FOR NO REASON B) the only reason i was driving was to make sure my friends didn't freeze to death?

Your chances are, well 0

Intent is unimportant in this case. And the police can pull over for a routine and completely general check.

They had a reason. And he wanted to see your license, because you looked young, had a number of drunk friends in the back of your car, and it was past midnight.

Honestly, you'd only loose money for something like that. At least in my book. Even though, the post 12 no new licensed drivers ban seems a bit odd.

Also you seem to have already amassed some points before hand - since 2 is way too small.

So again, don't think you really stand a chance.

I don't think that a lawsuit is a good idea there, but you'll have to talk to a lawyer about that.

Maybe it is better to ask your friends for sharing in the penalty of 450 dollars and giving you a ride every once in a while until you get your license back.

Not sure where you are from but in Nova Scotia,Canada Police can not pull you over with out giving you a reason

P.S The cop that pulled me over has been taken to court about 10 times after this on charges of "Ageism" basicly the guy hates Teens and has had alot of his charges Withdrew in the past

evildude;4766247A) HE PULLED ME OVER FOR NO REASON[/QUOTE]

Maybe he thought you had your seat belt off or something. I'm sure he can come up with one if he really needs to.

[QUOTE=evildude;4766247]B) the only reason i was driving was to make sure my friends didn't freeze to death?

That doesn't make any difference as far I know. Still you'd need to talk to a lawyer about it I guess, see if the law provides you any defence on those grounds.

Effectively, assuming the cop isn't a moron, your chances are sweet FA.

It's not really considered ageism if he looks in your car, sees you are a new driver, and you are driving after curfew. Someone violating the law is a good reason to pull someone over.

I don't want to get pulled over, but I'm not going to claim innocence if a cop pulls me over and tickets me for breaking the law when I was doing something wrong.

A) You were driving after midnight, which is your driving curfew. B) Doesn't matter, see A.

In all reality, your chances are slim. Your arguments are also weak, because you were still driving after your designated curfew, so they'll still have an argument against your case.

In any case, good luck!

evildude;4766247I am driving after 12 MIDNIGHT which in nova scotia

I think your problem is Nova Scotia, my parents got pulled over 6 times in 1 week while driving there, only 3 of those pull overs were actually needed. (my dad likes to drive fast...). That's all I can really say, havn't gone for my driving classes yet. So Good Luck.:cheers:
