I’m enjoying a new hobby - collecting material with which to fight a traffic ticket. I’ve learned a lot of cool things along the way, and I’ve got a layered defense that you couldn’t scratch with a photon topedo, but in the interests of being thorough, I’d like clarification on the following point from a qualified Doper:
Does the authority of a cop in a tiny municipality to write speeding tickets extend to other tiny municipalities which border the cop’s own tiny municipality? To wit: Podunk PD Officer JimmyBob thinks he sees me speeding. He’s forgotten (or he’s counting on me not noticing) that I’m actually in the City of Boonie Heights - while he’s still in Podunk. Would he have authority to cross into Boonie Heights, stop me and write me a citation? Particularly one where the Citation reads “PLAINTIFF: City of Podunk”?
I have no intention of actually using this point, as it’s several layers down in the order of reasons to Move for Dismissal, but why not make sure all the ducks are in a row?
