    Why would you think that? If a cop wants to pull you over, then over you shall be pulled. They have an unlimited list of bullshit reasons, if they really want to use them.

    A friend who lives in a small town was once pulled over after he let another driver out of a parking lot at a stop light. Light turned green, John waited for the guy to exit the lot before he went. The cops were running a program that handed out gift certificates, donated by local restaurants, to drivers whom they witnessed performing random acts of courtesy. Cop tells John what's up, commends him for being a nice guy, and asks for his license--which was suspended for DUI.

    Oh, shit.

    The cop was unwilling to bust him for essentially being a good citizen, so he allowed him to drive home, a few blocks away, with a warning to stay off the road until his license was restored.
