Question Police and the information they have

Just want to pose a hypothetical question - let's say you were out riding one day and got pulled over for having an illegally mounted plate. The officer is cool about it, tells you it's illegal and to get it fixed, and you're off on your merry way. No ticket. Then let's say a week or so later you get pulled over again for the same thing, because after all, you're a dilligent sportbiker and ordered the fender eliminator kit/undertail, but alas, it hasn't arrived yet! Does the second cop have any way of knowing that you were pulled over for the illegal plate the week before? Does the first officer have to make record of it or anything somehow?

Dont know..
But it brings to my mind that it is a fact that points stay on your record for 2 yrs. But they stay in your police file for more. I dont know for how much more but i am assuming 2 to 3 yrs more than the first 2 yrs.
Also you should bring this up in court if need be because your court records are your police records.

no, they have no way to know that you got a warning unless you offer the info...even when you get a ticket "taken under advisment" as long as youre pulled over by another agency they wont know.....Cops have whats called a "run sheet" that pretty much accounts for thier time while on the road...warnings and other things arent thrown on there becasue there wasnt a citation given out..now they do run your plate but that dont mean shit...cops run various plates all day...its not like your credit where the more you run it the shittier it is nor is it kept in some sort of log in a computer somewhere unless its flagged as a stolen vehicle....you should be good to go bro...just dont get stopped by the same cop then youll be in trouble...lol...and yes they do remember!

It is actually good this way. Because, I have had a ticket for speeding in Houston and in Galveston. Had deferred judification in both counties at the same time. Don't know how I got away with it but I did!

actually in police records/files they go back as far as 10 - 12 yrs via their little computers in the car... (just learned that this summer thanks to my brother-in-law who is a cop)

also the "defense" of having the stuff on order but not yet received is not a valid one to get you off a ticket for equipment violation if already warned... they see it as you are NOT to drive it until it is legal... not that you are ok if you are waiting for the parts to correct the problem..

I would assume like the rest, verbal warnings aren't recorded for others to pull up and see but I'll be sure to be askin next time I see my B-in-L
