    Pardon me, I'm fluent in drunk.

    I believe he is saying that he got a ticket for driving north in a green car and beat it three times while the DPS officer slept through court. He did not beat it or the accompanying speeding allegation the fourth time, because the officer was paying attention.

    His defense was that he purchased the vehicle in Kansas with no restrictions on the direction of travel. If the officer could not understand that, then he would not be capable of effectively judging his speed. The judge probably either giggled or rolled his eyes and dismissed the case.

    In the fourth case, the officer was paying enough attention to realize that he wrote a note to help him remember the offense in the space for the primary offense, explained that to the judge, and the speeding charge that should have been the primary offense was accepted and held.

    Well, I can see where going North in a green car would be against the law. Were you perhaps in the Southbound lane?

    Sounds like a BS story, because in Texas the ticket is not the charging document.

    From what I was told by a buddy of mine in the DPS, to be considered a complete stop, is that the vehicle has to cease forward movement of at least 3 seconds. Whether or not that is fact, that is what I have always heard since I was licensed to drive (30 yrs now) and that is what I have always done.
