Can someone explain this to me? I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard someone say, either in court or on a traffic stop that they didn’t stop long enough and they tend to use the ‘three second rule’. Where in the hell does it say in the CVC that there is any kind of requirement for how long you have to stop? What’s that? There isn’t one? Right. Refer back to the Stop post.
So, here’s the scenario:
I stop someone for running a stop sign. I ask the driver if they know why I stopped them. They say, “Because I didn’t stop for three seconds?” Huh?
So, where do people think this originates from?
