Bad Cop

Happened in Las Vegas, cop rear ends the motorcycle and breaks out the scare tactics (threatens to write tickets) to get out of it).

I believe it's universal in all States, when you rear-end someone it always your fault, no matter the circumstances, because you are required to maintain a "safe" following distance.  When a citizen hits another vehicle in the rear, the law assumes you were not maintaining a "safe" distance.  That's been my experience.

  1. My boss got rear ended in NJ, and he got the ticket. SEVERAL witness said that the kid just blasted into the back of him while he was pulling onto a turn ramp. They all said he signaled, was already in the lane, kid was zig-zagging through traffic, etc....Cop didn't care. My boss was from VT, and the kid was from Jersey, so you figure it out.....
