Hahahahaha. You're no LE Officer. You're just the same ol' stalker I've been plagued with since day one. Get a life. Stalking is breaking the law, too, in case you didn't know. BOO! Hahahahahahahha!

Oddly enough, that is a law on the books in a number of states, some of which actually name the statute as "avoiding an intersection" or "avoiding a traffic control device." They are just not always strictly enforced, like speeding laws. In Arkansas, the violation you describe falls under 27-51-104, Careless or Prohibited Driving. Where are you vacationing, I'll look it up if I can find it.

Usually not an arrestable offense, so not sure why searched unless they had probable cause or consent from the driver to search.

I'm vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland. I didn't give them permission to search, but we were ordered out of the vehicle and they looked through the grocery bags. We had bought liquor, but it was unopened and everyone was 21+.

The fine was $40, so everyone said they would chip in $10, but it's additional points on my license, so I'm going to court in hope that the officer doesn't show up. I already have points on my license, so I need to try to get them at least reduced so I don't have to appear before the MVA. Ugh!!!!'

Duck Lover, it is on Maryland's books as well, as expected. MD Code of Transportation 21-201 (a)(2):

The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersection controlled by a traffic control device may not drive across private property or leave the roadway for the purpose of avoiding the instructions of a traffic control device.

Thank you so much for checking into that for me. I'm going to throw myself on the mercy of the court. It's not the fine, it's the points. If I can get the points lowered or completely removed, I'll be happy to pay the court costs and the fine. Hopefully the cop won't show up, and then the judge will throw it out. I got a ticket awhile back for warning oncoming traffic that radar was set up by flashing my headlights. D'OH!

Appreciate the help! <3

There are good and bad employees in every job. Some become police officers because they really want to curb the crime and help people. Some become one for vendetta because of something that happened to friend or family. Some become one for a power trip and those are ones to just go along with and later try to get help for. I personally would not want the job because just living and shopping here I see enough ugly, but they see it all at its worst. I would not want to have to try to control someone who is abusing another when they are too drunk or high to even know they are doing it. I was once taught in class that people on meth or crack are 10 ft tall and bullet proof in their mind. It is hard to control them because adrenaline high in them. Going through parking lot to avoid traffic always been illegal, just don't worry about it sometimes. Kinda hard to be police in resort area for sure, more drinking and drugs and other offences that go with it there.

He was doing his job. I just don't want traffic violations on my record when I try to set up my business. I have a clean record aside from a couple of traffic citations. I've never been in any trouble but I do have some speeding tickets and other traffic offensives. They only stay on record for a few years anyway. Most of the speeding tickets have come from not disabling my cruise control when the speed limit drops from 55 or 65 to 35 or 40. Look, I do have sort of a "lead foot", but I'm trying.:)

Duck lover, I wouldn't count on the officer just not showing up. It's his job to be there, plus it would damage his reputation with the court if he just didn't show up. They may just reschedule the court date if the officer has a conflict (like training), which will inconvenience you further. And if unaddressed by other means, you will likely get points added to your license, you will simply have higher court costs for taking it to court.

I would ask the clerk of the court, before the court date, whether there is any kind of first offender forgiveness program in that state and whether you qualify. That may depend on whether you currently have any points or what your traffic history is. You may also have to retain an attorney, as there may be additional paperwork or procedure in court. You might get lucky with your plan, but I wouldn't count on an officer just not showing up for court. And I would be looking into the possibilities you are hoping for well before your court date.
