I do the same as ZX636, but I have been busted so many times by sneaky f'n cops. I have always got off with a warning, lucky me, after getting atleast 6 marnings, I don't pull the wheel up in town very often anymore. Every state is different with these fines. I can't believe he just didn't write yo a ticket, I mean [email protected] jail is a little harsh for something like that.

:iagree: Yup, I really need to stop pulling wheelies in the Chambers Hill area, stupid me, every time I pull one on 441 I pull one up and ride it to the interstate. The police department is right around the corner, I've never been caught yet, but my time will come. I try to stick to wheelies on back roads only, but it's so hard not to do one just to show off or becuase I like to do them.

Hey, as far as I know, from my uncle (25yr law enforcement) and friend (MP), they both said that the cops MUST BE VISIBLE to the public. They cannot sit in blind spots, without lights on or anything like that. They MUST BE VISIBLE to the public in a way that it wouldn't cause an accident. So at night, that'd mean like viewable with like side-markers on or under a light on the side of the road.

:skep: I don't think so Graff!! The cops always sit in the dark. They must have visable markings on their vechicle. Is that what you mean?

They must be visible. Like if you approach from the side, they letters are reflective, but from the front and rear, you must also be able to see them. I'll check with the local PD, call my uncle and find out from my friend on Tuesday where it all states that. But I've even been told that by other cops before.

So if they are like sitting in a "blind-spot", you have to be able to see something of their car from the front or rear cause they can actually cause an accident. Much like what almost happened to me on my bike like last week.

It varies from state to state.
ie. Ohio State has to have lights on when parking in the dark. The local Sheriff or Police can hide under the cover of darkness. I have noticed that some counties do it different as well.
Here in NC they all can hide anyway they want to, as long as they are not endangering the traffic flow.That alone is a strange rule because, Driving down the high way and find a cop. Every body slams on the brakes and that endangers the flow of traffic.

I think Jeeps is right...state to state is different

Here in Michigan, they can sit in the dark, behind a fat wife, or whatever they want. I had to bounce when I blew past a state popo on the highway at like 85 in a 55 on my bike. He was sitting in the dark under a overpass.

As far as markings... here in Michigan I believe they have to have at least one side of the car marked. Many new cars have the black reflective tape on the one side on the black car. Can't see it during the day and it is usually on the side that isn't facing you at night. They don't need front or rear markings. It gets pretty tricky....

Not to mention they have crown vics, impalla's, intrepids, chargers, and a few others.

I don't have any fun stories about being pulled over on the bike... I think it's only happened twice. Not to say that I should have been pulled over more...just that I haven't :whistle:

In Florida, especially Volusia County (Daytona), If they see you poppin' wheelies, They cuff you and take you to jail...

Glad that they have put a stop to ALL real crimes in Volusia County and have time to worry about wheelies :D
