    I was pulled over once, and while rifling through my wallet to retrieve my DL, the officer noticed my CPL. I didn't show it to him, he just happened to see it. He asked if I had any guns in the car, I didn't put 2 and 2 together, and looking a little suprised, said "no." I didn't have anything on me at the time, but that CPL did turn out to be a free pass!

    FYI... I was later told by a traffic cop, that a CPL is not linked to your DL in the state of Washington.

    Here are some EXCUSES for the books:
    "Officer, the guy driving behind me was tailgating and I didn't want to get rear ended so I ran the yellow."
    or
    "Officer, I was in a middle of a sneeze when I looked up and it was too late to stop."
    or
    "Officer, I was trying to get away from my ex-wife because she wants more money."
    or
    "My Toyota just started accelerating..."

    He "let you off" because he didn't have a charge he could make. Last time I looked, running a yellow light isn't a ticketable offense. Also, plain clothes don't usually make traffic cases. It may jeopardize their cover. Sounds to me like he was just bored and wanted to flex a little muscle. You came back too squeaky clean for him to flex much.

    yea, im in general of the opinion to tell the officer that you are carrying if he is going to run ur drivers license and find out you have a cc license.

    and yes, i have been let off many many times for that reason. especially being a female cc-er

    How do you know it was for that reason? I have been driving for a living for over 50 years & been let off MANY times. Most before I got my CPL. If you aren't actually doing something that endangers others, they usually give you a break.

    In Missouri your ccw is tied to your D/L.

    As for the yellow light, check you state codes. I think you will find that it is a violation to enter an intersection after the light changes to yellow. The yellow is to allow those in the intersection to clear it before the light turns red.

    The charge will usually read violating an electric signal, not running a red light.

    this guy sounds like another gecko45...what the **** is this, 20 questions? i'll bet he had mirrored aviators on too! i mean, i'm glad it turn out well for you but this guy had to be either straight out of the academy or trying to build himself up - and what's with the warning at the end? this is exactly the kind of "customer service" that give us LEOs a bad name. what's an undercover doing pulling you over anyway?

    if this is actually the way it went down, he could have handled that so much better, but man that's crazy - watch out for those orange lights though.

    Well, assuming he was driving the speed limit before he saw the yellow light, and then proceeded to accelerate, I would have to say he could have been speeding.

    IN Florida I believe it is "Disregarding a traffic control device" but you are correct. AN effing yellow light does not mean speed up, it means stop and you can and will be stopped or ticketed for it in all of the 6 states a regularly drive in
    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    Thanks for sharing

    I volunteered mine when I was stopped (I’m in Eugene). No ticket for me either, but I provided it with insurance, registration and DL.

    Ditto in most jurisdictions in Michigan you get the same ticket for running a yellow as you get for running a red. It even says something like "running amber/red light..."

    For those of us in Texas, in case you're curious:

    §544.007. TRAFFIC-CONTROL SIGNALS IN GENERAL

    [...]

    (e) An operator of a vehicle facing a steady yellow signal is warned by that signal that:

    (1) movement authorized by a green signal is being
    terminated; or
    (2) a red signal is to be given.

    [...]
    Here's a summary I found:
    So many people are unclear as to what a yellow light really means. By law, a yellow light is simply a warning that the light is about to change to red. Technically, since no other direction can have a green while you have a yellow, a yellow still indicates that you have the right-of-way, and is essentially an extension of the green (but puts you on notice that the green is expiring.) As such, you are allowed to enter the intersection when the light is yellow, and as long as you have entered the intersection before the light turns red, you have not violated the law. Does this mean you should race to beat the red-- no, of course not. If the light is yellow and you have not passed the "point of no return" and can safely stop, you should do so. Note, however, that I said "safely" stop. If the road is wet and you don't think you could reasonably stop without sliding into the intersection or perhaps having someone slide into you, then keep going-- your duty to prevent an accident is foremost.
