Some municipalities in S. Ca have this type of law on the books...legit and enforceable.

Here is the Los Angeles Municipal Code version:

SEC. 80.36.10. CRUISING PROHIBITED.

(Amended by Ord. No. 171,574, 5/1/97.)

(a) The ranking peace officer on duty within any area affected by traffic congestion may, having determined that such area is so affected, establish one or more traffic control points at or near such area to regulate cruising. Cruising is defined to mean the driving of a motor vehicle two or more times within a six-hour period, in a particular direction, past a traffic control point so established on a portion of any street identified as subject to cruising controls by signs posted at the beginning and end of the controlled roadway that briefly and clearly state the appropriate provisions of this section and Section 21100(k) of the Vehicle Code, and after the operator of the vehicle, either as the operator or passenger therein, has been given the notice specified in this section. The ranking peace officer on duty within, or near, the area affected by traffic congestion, or his designee, shall be empowered to post the signs required by this section.

(b) Any person, who, as the operator of, or a passenger in, a motor vehicle driven bin a particular direction, past any traffic control point established by the ranking peace officer on duty within the affected area, on a portion of any street identified as subject to cruising controls as specified in Subsection (a), may be given written notice that further driving past the control point, in violation of Subsection (c), hereof, will be a violation of this section.

(c) No person, having driven a motor vehicle, or, having been a passenger in a motor vehicle driven, past a traffic control point established pursuant to this section and having received written notice that further driving past the traffic control point will constitute a violation of this section, shall drive past the control point within the period while cruising controls are in effect. Each successive trip past the traffic control point shall constitute a separate violation of this section, and no additional notice shall be required prior to issuance of a second or subsequent citation, or arrest.

well, I understand Blaze's logic, but this sort of law would be silly to enforce during commuting hours (in Los Angeles) in my opinion. I suppose this sort of law is on the books (in Los Angeles) because the prosecution (re: police) has not fared well in prior court cases with people who have had the same passion for fighting things in court. I agree that it is laughable, however, the law exists (in LA city proper) and can be used as a basis to set up checkpoints (only in designated spots clearly marked with the appropriate signage).

I think that Rex's friend's situation was probably more subjective (by the law enforcement officer) in nature than what I have posted, which is why I thought of revenue generation as an underlying motive. But then again, it's just speculation on my part.


...BTW I like how "it" is used to reference one's wife.

I got busted this morning on the way to work. I had an open road in front of me at a stop light and nailed it through 3rd gear, then realized a cop was behind me. Oops. 65 in a 45.

He accused me of racing and told me I need to do stuff like that on closed roads. He also gave me a ticket for no insurance b/c my card was out of date. I need to call my insurance and ask why they didn't send me new cards.

I would say that I'm due since my last ticket was 15 years ago. I'm just glad I didn't have an STi or my old Mustang b/c it would have been 100 in a 45. :-)
