That's because they're not really meant to be obeyed. They're meant for leverage and to intimidate ordinary people.I've never understood the rationale for the duty to inform.
Officer safety? The criminal will ignore the law. The law abiding citizen is not a threat. So no, not really office safety.
Most of these statutes are can be used as traps on law abiding citizens - what does "promptly" or "immediately" mean?
Officer: Do you know why I stopped you?
Driver: Uh, no.
Officer: Okay, clocked you going 7 over. License, registration and proof of insurance please.
Driver: Sure, I need to open the glove box, okay?
Officer: Okay, thanks for letting me know.
Driver: One more thing, per state law, I need to inform you that I'm a license carrier and I am carrying right now, it's at 3:30, how do you want to handle it?
Question: Did the drive violate the law? Did he "promptly" or "immediately" inform the officer?
These laws are a mess.
