Default Re: Cops, Popo, and the "Fuzz"

Always stop. Running may well get you more than a Class C misdemeanor.

Regardless of whether you can quote from it, just knowing what section of the traffic code you're subject to impresses them. I was only ever questioned once though. In Utah, even if you're on a bicycle, you are required to complete a right hand turn if you're in the right hand turn lane. I was going straight through an intersection and the officer originally pulled me over for impeding traffic without realizing I was actually conforming to Utah Traffic Code Section 41, Subsection 1100.

FWIW, it's also against the traffic code to ride with no hands but they've never given me any grief about that.
