2 tickets at once!!!
So apparently there's been a lotta threads in regards of Officers stopping rider's in our community and pulling them over cus their license plate is not properly placed, meaning that they cannot see it "well enough".
So my buddy today going to school got pulled over by a Officer in the North Dallas area (Allen, pretty well known for their cops being tough), got 2 tickets and a warning because 1) his plate was tucked, and 2) because his inspection was out of date (due to him working on his bike for 1+ year, which he was going to remedy and has remedied today), and the warning was for his inspection sticker not being displayed to the rear as well. Which the officer said he could technically take him to jail and impound his bike for (which i don't really understand why)...
Any way thought everyone in the Allen, TX area should know or in Texas at least apparently by law it is a citation-able offense if you do not 1) show your plate to the rear in a clear visible manner, meaning it cannot point down to the dirt and cannot be tucked, and 2) inspection sticker must be facing to and displayed to the rear as well.
Anyway I'm curious to know if anyone knows if getting two tickets in a row like that if they can both be dismissed after fixing it?
Oh well, guess he learned his lesson X), Happy riding!
