Re: Funny thing happened on the way to work...(NAC)

That ticket may not be so simple because prior to the pullover, the
officer will usually log the license number in the computer to check for
warrants on the plateholder and to see if there are any "armed and
dangerous" messages. The plate number is also radioed to dispatch when the
officer has an intention of making a pull over.

If the driver left the scene without the officer instructing him to do so,
he faces the original summons+arrest at his home (not bench warrant) for
leaving the scene.

Try driving away from a cop while he's giving you a ticket (even if the
ticket isn't written out). Your neigbours will get to see you taken away
in cuffs because you're arrested.
