This should be moved to Washington State sub forums but I will respond to this here.
Problem #2 Next time, simply say these words "Why have you stopped me officer?" and repeat as needed. Do not converse with the officer about anything else other then the traffic stop in progress.1st I should start out by saying that when the sheriff initiated contact with me & the first moment I heard him talking & turned & recognized him to be a sheriff I was in the middle of paying for gas at a gas station near my home at one of the pay at the pump areas that one may pay with cash! He says "Sir, excuse me sir you're being pulled over!" I gave him my full attention as I noticed he was parked at an angle behind my vehicle with his red & blues on! Then the next thing out of his mouth were questions regarding a 2011 incident (date of this event was October 3, 2014) that happened on the very street I was attempting to get gas at! I didn't go into it much other than saying that "yeah I subpoenaed two of your co-workers twice & they failed to appear on two separate occasions." He continued briefly about the past
Problem #3 At this point, you were not driving, you were at a fueling location obtaining fuel for your vehicle. The officer had no basis to force you to stop everything you were doing and make you get back into your vehicle. He could require that you not leave the scene, but I don't see any reason what so ever to force you to return to your vehicle.& then he told me I was speeding & asked me if i knew how fast I was going & I replied "I can't say that I was speeding sir & I am not going to argue with you out of respect." Anyways at that moment he demanded my license, insurance, & registration & then demanded me to get back inside my vehicle
Problem #4 Since when are we required to have proof of insurance on our person when NOT driving?? The fact that your insurance information was inside your vehicle is more then adequate. End of story.& I asked if i could go inside the store at the gas station while he did what he had to do & he said to get back inside my vehicle! So when he appeared at my driver's side door he hands me back my credentials & tells me I am not going to ticket you for speeding or for the lack of not having your proof of insurance on your person
Problem #5 Easy solution. Contest the ticket and explain to the judge that you did in fact have insurance and the situation. There is no law that requires one to have proof of insurance on their person or at any time other then while driving.& went into "The Speech" which got a little strange to me at the point when he started twisting & turning back & forth pushing his name tag & badge on his right breast side of his shirt towards me with one twist & then pushing his sheriff departments patch on his shoulders with one turn & he repeated these motions 4 or 5 times & as he was doing this he kept repeating to me "What's My Name?(waited for my answer) & Who Do I Work For?(waited for my answer) well eventually it was over with no tickets/infractions written or verbal or written warnings given! I shook his hand thanked him for the brake & wished him a goodnight! Well close to 7 months later the next year(2015) I open my mailbox & what do I see? Its a civil infractions notice with a speeding 23 M.P.H. over the speed limit ticket along with a no insurance ticket
