Yea people get state and local laws mixed up all the time. And people down cops but they just do their jobs like everyone else if they weren't there, there would problems. I know some aren't bright or are twisted but for the most part give them a break. They do a job that nobody else can or wants to. They live every stop not knowing if it will be their last. All it takes is one person being stupid to cause a lot of problems.

As a cop I can give you a lil insight but I'm not familiar with ohio laws only tx and fl, like most said he prolly was looking for a dui.... I say that cuz that's how I got my first dui lol... But also alot of times when were bored and nothings goin on those small meaningless laws are all we got to take care of lol.... And there are also a lot of douchebag cops that just want to be *******s, all I ask is keep what kansasboy said cuz I've been shot at and stabbed and its not fun not too mention how many people don't like us... No one likes cops unroll they need one..... Sorry for the rant

I got pulled tonight for my LED 3rd brake light. It was stupid he said they were to bright and apparently someone wrote my plate down and said it was blinding them and the cop was like yeah its not blinding me but ya know its florida and everything. ITs not even against the law it was just gay.

"Local" as in individual towns and cities do not have the statutory authority to enact their own motor vehicle laws that would superceed and be more restrictive than existing state law. Local ordinances have their limits.

If you want to know what the law actually is in your state that you are obligated to follow, I suggest you look up and read your real state laws. Word of mouth means nothing.

Local laws do not trump state laws.

My mother was T-boned in a mall parking lot years ago in the drivers side door. In this case the "they" were the doctors that worked on her. And the reason "they" thought she'd be dead if she was wearing her seat belt is because the car that hit her was sitting in the drivers seat and pushed her against the passenger side window. I am not saying that its wise to not wear it, but there are times when its possible you were safer without it.

See my avatar?



The steering wheel was pushed over the center console and the roof was pushed down to the level of the dash by a tree. I was seatbelted. I'm still here too. It hurt. State Police didn't believe I was in the truck, I told them "ya you're right I just jumped in after it crashed itself to pretend and collect insurance..."

just to throw this out there in the seatbelt thing. I had a big crash where i was t-boned by someone doing 60 mph on my passanger side (long story)

The state officer who looked a tmy car said to me "if you hadnt been in a seatbelt you probley would have been dead".

Now i'm not saying the seatbelt saved my life but i'm no ttaking the chance of not wearing one.

The car that hit me was sittin on my center console only a halff an inch away from me.

That seatbelt is most likely what held me against the driver side of the car and kept me from being splatterd on the passanger side
