I think that the people of Larimore could easily fight those tickets. People in the midwest have warmed up their cars (locking their car doors) for decades. Why ticket them now after so many years. Like the person said, the ND law says "cars left running with keys in the ignition" ... car starters do not use keys, and even if a person did break into the car, they would not be able to put the car in gear. Without the key, the steering wheel is in a locked position. Sounds to me those cops are pretty desperate. I bet people are going to lose their respect for them.

No one was ever cited for leaving their vehicle running in Larimore. You people need to take a look at the big picture and realize a rumor can go a long way. There are many city ordinances, including larimore that prohibit leaving an unattended vehicle running. North Dakota state law does not address it.

hey larimore people, I know you should all get one of them sunscreen window things that look like a human head and pull it down when you jump out that way it will look like some ones in your car. well just use your infant one with daffy duck for now-- sounds like the police wont catch on to quick anyways. if you switch between daffy and sponge bob they will never suspect.

The cop that was doing it was from the state of Maryland. He, like other cops, wasn't around very long.

I am that cop that you have referred to i your posting. I can honestly say that during my tenure there no one was issued a citation for the offense you make reference to. Not being from the area I inquired as to the legality of a vehicle running and was told that the made it legal to do same. Again, no one received any citation during my watch.

I am not sure as to what you are trying to say. Can you be more specific. If you are referring to citations written I can say that during my tour as chief of police I did not write any citations for that.
