IMPORTANT INFO ON LEGALITIES - PLEASE READ! ESPECIALLY BEFORE COMMENTING ON THE RELEVANT LAWS! IF YOU PLAN TO TAKE A SHOT AT MY LEGAL ANALYSIS WITHOUT READING THIS INFO AND MY BRIEF, YOU WILL GET OWNED!
This is a seatbelt ticket I received from an illegally operated unmarked Washington State Patrol car. It was subsequently thrown out, though the judge ducked the unmarked car issue. Click here for my NEWLY REVISED FOR 2014 downloadable brief that fully explains the legalities of the issue: http://www.mediafire.com/view/30onoy9...
Also see this news story about the case: http://www.salem-news.com/articles/se...
If you have an unmarked car case of your own, you can print that brief and take it to court with you. You can also contact me to see what I can do to help you prepare for your case.
Make no mistake, the use of unmarked cars for patrol in Washington is ILLEGAL, whether done by the State Patrol or a city or county department, and any ticket issued from one is invalid. Just make sure to read the brief that's linked to above before trying this at home. There are different marking requirements for different types of departments that you'll need to know the details of.
State Patrol cars used for traffic patrol are required to have an identifying sticker in the rear window, and an official plate. (That includes the fully marked cars, which seldom have the sticker anymore.)
City and county cars are required to have lettering or a logo on the sides.
In the case of the State Patrol, they rely on the exemption in the law for "traffic control vehicles." In short, "traffic control vehicles" have yellow lights and are for CONTROLLING traffic in work or accident zones. They are NOT the same thing as traffic enforcement vehicles and their use of that exemption is a fraud. That exemption also does not cover the official plate requirement, which is separate from the marking requirement.
This issue is far more serious than improper tickets. Marking requirements were enacted so the public would have a way to identify that they are being stopped by a real police car and not an impersonator. Page 11 of the brief details incidents of impersonators who have robbed, raped, and murdered in this state.
If you would like to make an inquiry with a WSP official who is aware of this issue and has discussed it with me, you can write to: Robert.Calkins@wsp.wa.gov To read my own conversation with him, which ends in the same way as all these conversations do, click here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/6plk6tp...
SPECIAL OFFER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT!
As you're aware, what I want is to settle these issues in court so we can all have clarity. If you'll agree to write me the tickets I need, (for non-hazardous seatbelt violations) I'll agree to take this video down. I need one from WSP, from a car with no rear-window sticker and no official plate. And I need one from a county or city car with no lettering or logo on the sides. While I prefer to stay close to home in Pierce County, I'll take them from anywhere in the Western half of Washington State.
Assuming you are really confident in your position, and are not actually perpetrating a titanic fraud upon the citizens of Washington State, and are not endangering them in the course of that by facilitating impersonators, this should not be a problem. Should it?
