I agree. I don't recall a time i've been in your car that you've been going the speed limit. Or harry's car. Or Zak's Car. And ya know, flying out of the cul de sac has nothing to do with the fact that we were all standing out there either.
Brandon, people in your car is a distraction.
Brandon, i'm going to say this here to clear things up for everyone reading this. DO NOT fight anything in court. The cop made it very clear that you won't get enough points with this ticket to have your license suspended, BUT if you fight it, you're going to piss off a judge, they're going to bring up the tint infraction that they let you off with and you're going to get a harder time. They already let you off easy. Don't push it.
And suspicion of stolen property is most certainly reason to pull you ver.
Brandon also forgot to mention this wasn't in a parking lot. he plled into the gas station when the cop got behind him. The cop flashed the red and blues as soon as brandon passed him with his tinted windows closed and not breaking the speed limit. Because of that, you can't claim that he targeted you because you were a teenager... he couldn't see you.
And the lack of a license plate is a secondary offense, and thats why they pulled you over. (sidenote: in the state of georgia, there is no grace period on tags. if the car is on the road its required to have tags unless its fresh from the dealer lot. My mother learned this when she got pulled over for the same reason. There's no other reasonable option but it IS a primary offense.
they thought you stole the car once they realized you were a teenager driving a BMW in a county other than the county of purchase with a bunch of girls in the car.
you gotta give people all the details if you want them to understand. In the big picture, you got fucked, and you got fucked bad. But at the same time your dad did give you a warning about having people in the car less than a day and a half before the cop caught you. That was just stupid on your part.
