expired registration card in Nj
Today I was driving and got pulled over for expired registration. It was 32 days over and I truly forgot. It had my old address on the card. I forgot to renew it. Well, I had 2 children in the car ages 4 and 2 and the officer demanded me out of the car and had my truck towed in the middle of the woods. I havnt had a ticket in at least 10 years. Is he allowed to do this? He said he originally pulled me over becuse my front plate was off, which I had in my truck. It took him 2 miles later to pull me over for the front plate!!! Are cops allowed to run your tags if they are behind you? I am extremely upset. This is going to cost me aa fortune!! Is this legal? I mean is the towing legal or do I just get a ticket?
