Fook NYC

Postby BassAgent » Tue Jul 02, 2013 4:25 pm

This is the dumbest shit I have ever dealt with.

On my way home from work, I pass a cop who is parked on the side of the street, i ride in the open lane next to stopped traffic on the right and make a right turn, I see the cop turn his lights on and go after me.

At this point I'm thinking wtf, I know for sure I havent done anything wrong.

The street is super busy so I pull over into a parking garage.

Cops get out with guns drawn and take me to the floor.

They they handcuffed me and smashed my face(helmet into the ground).... scratched up my nice arai corsair V.

After looking up all my crap they cite me for:

1- Riding with my visor open ($230)
2- Unlawfully passing on the right ($230)
3- Having 1 earbud in ($130)
4- Disobeying a lawful order (wtf) ($230)
5- No license plate (it broke off in my last crash, I have it in my backpack) ($130)

And finally, get this shit: 6- Trespassing

Apparently the parking lot i pulled into was private property so they wrote me a summons for trespassing.

So now I have to pay $900 in tickets and have a shitload of points on my record.

That sucks mate. What makes them behave like this? Are you and the bike a shiny clean biker unit or a dirty , rough looking example? The UK police seem to pick on the latter more in my experience.

Fancy driving around with no licence plate in the country with the most over zelous cops in any civilized nation, I would suggest they thought it was stolen, they probably thought you had an IED in your back pack.

That's a lot of tickets though for naff all :shock: :lol:

Whats the "having one ear bud in"??

Two reasons: 1. We have become a fascist police state in much of the US, particularly in larger metro areas - "We the People" have come to accept this since 9/11, and have been convinced collectively that trading freedom for so-called "security" is the way to go; 2. Revenue. The more obtained by the state, the better - further affording the militarization of police in the US.

Good points ... And while excessive on the part of the jack-booted, I can see why this clown was pulled over.

Ear Buds: In most states, you are not technically legally allowed to be wearing ear buds (not even one), headphones, etc. while operating a motor vehicle (and yet the deaf are allowed to drive everywhere - go figure ...).

Why cant you ride with your visor open at urban speeds? Driving without the plates are 130 only(!) and other nonsens-crap 230 per case :lol: And no ticket for SDR baffles out :lol: Anyway seems you got them mad for some reason or it is really Fook NYC...

LOL - the irony of the visor thing, is that while NY has a helmet (and "eye protection") law - a visor is not required. E.g., if someone has glasses on, then it would technically be OK to have the visor open. Apparently also, in NY, you can have a "single earphone" helmet speaker ...

Mad? Naw - more like bored cops. Beats the hell out of rolling crack heads, when you can harass some guy who is likely to shell out for the fines.

"The land of the free" is sadly becoming more and more ironic when it comes to the states. Can Americans not see how much of a police state it has become? Time for a new war of independence, both there and here. Show greedy and corrupt fat arsed politicians and corporate directors that without the people the're nothing

The cop told me the only reason he came after me me to begin with was because he saw my visor up. Not because of a license plate or anything else.

Are you allowed to wear an open face helmet in NYC? If so what's the problem with having visor up? What if you have a flip up helmet? What if it fogs up?

That is the most stupid law I have heard, in fairness they are all pretty lame.

Yes you are allowed to. That's why it's stupid. If you crack your visor open for any reason they ticket you. They don't care if it's fogging up or if you are hot at a stop light, they will ticket you.

Sucks you were roughed up but how in any way shape or form did you think it was a good idea to ride around without a license plate??? That is asking to get pulled over and get cited for anything they feel fit......

In the uk you can ride with your visor up, but technically if you ride with your visor up and wearing sunglasses they are not standards complient safety eye wear and breach health and safety laws. Wft! I bet noone has been pulled over for it though.

Bet he thought he'd caught one of these that are the scourge of the city at the moment. Pissing off cops and decent bikers alike with their antics.

Still not normal behavior for the NYPD what they did to you. I'd file a complaint pronto.

You're a marked man for some reason..No matter where you go..
It IS true..The cops are out for ANYTHING they can get you for..I just got a moving violation a month ago..Simply passing through a turn right to a side street..Confusing..but since I grew up in the city I was in..I've done that move 1,000
times..I couldn't understand when he pulled me over..Except..he was waiting to catch everyone that did the same thing I did..No points..I did traffic school..Total cost was $350. and after all said..He asked why I was in the city in the first place..??? Fack.!!! Since when is it any of his business..????.I told him I just left the dentist I've had for 30 years..Of course..it pays to grin and bare it..He said he could of written me for something else at the same time..I just laughed to myself..How facking rediculous these jerks are getting.!!!! They line their pockets with our coin and then put the city/state in bankrupcy...

P.S.
I STILL wonder why you had to go to N.Y. in the first place..
All the riding is damn near year around here in So.Cal..Next...we're gonna hear
somone stole your bikes and truck...I shouldn't talk to loud...I don't think I could stand living in New York for more than a day..

Income generation. Motorcyclists seem to be reliable marks. " Why do you rob banks"? "Because that is where they keep the money". "Why do you pull over so many motorcyclist"? "Because that is where they keep the money"
Sorry to inform you that this is nothing special to NY or CA and or all other two lettered bounderies.
Suck it up and figure out where the plate is to be placed. Oh thats right, you didnt have time to mount the plate.

I think we are all overlooking the elephant in the room...

Pulled over for a traffic offence by cops with guns drawn.. From traffic offence to the possibility of being shot. Just like that. Shot for having a number plate in your back-pack, an one earphone in your ear and a visor open. Shot to death. Such is the possibility of an escalation. So, what if you didnt stop? Would they open fire? For a traffic offence.. Really America...

I like the part where you pull into the private parking garage rather than pulling over to the side of the road. Did you ask if they have a warrant?

:lol: :lol: that's insane! The list of hard of hearing must be added to everyday with a stupid law like that considering how many Harley riders there are.

perhaps escalated slightly by Bass not stopping but for current NYC PD - about par for the course

there is a long thread running on ADVrider : http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=893683&highlight=police

I've been stopped at these check points and the cops are not in a good mood. Higher ups tell them to stop and write tickets for anything. if you you have some read the above link for some insight in to how it's done in NYC.
