What if the Police are out of their jurisdiction?
My question is whether or not a police officer can pull you over for speeding if they were sitting in another town when they clocked you? I was pulled over for speeding by one town, but where the police officer was sitting he was in another town. He was about 1/2 mile from his city limits, but waited till I got in his city limits before he pulled me over. Is this legal? Also, when he came up to the side of my vehicle to tell me why I was pulled over he said that I was doing 50 in a 35, but when he came back with the citation 20 minutes later he said he actually had me clocked at 54 in a 35. Is he allowed to change what he originally said? I now have to go to court because he changed what he originally said. I want to get a lawyer for this case...is it worth my while to get one?
