Is your vehicle rolling probable cause?

Probable Cause

Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

Probable cause is essentially the reason for law enforcement to initiate a traffic stop.

Examples of rolling probable cause are:

  • License plate light not working
  • Broken windshield;
  • Expired registration tags;
  • Objects hanging from your mirror;
  • No front license plate;
  • License plate obstructed by dirt or snow;
  • Broken driver side mirror;
  • Tinted driver or front passenger windows; and
  • Broken headlight or tail light.

A quality Attorney can suppress a traffic stop were there was no probable cause, however, even the most qualified Lawyers will have a difficult time if a vehicle has any of the above problems.

So please, for the sake of your attorney, don’t drive a rolling probable cause vehicle.
