I was just asked but now would like to know if;
a cop can take your license (Have it suspended on the spot) & tow your bike to have it MVI in this situation???
Alex Fraser bridge, merging from Anacis Island 5 lanes into 3.
A semi truck & trailer is merging but no one is letting him in so he is at a stand still (not moving), there is ½ a car length plus the shoulder to his right so a bike rides past the truck in first gear 1/8 throttle on the right but not on the shoulder when a cop notices the bike hits the red & blues parks his car half on the merge lane & half in the through lane turning the bridge into 2 lanes to get past him.
Cop jumps out of his car 2 hands in the air to get the motorcyclists attention then points at him & directs him to stop beside the cop car then proceeds to lecture the motorcyclist on accidents & deaths due to stupid drivers that do things like what the cyclist just did & for what, to save a few minutes?.
Motor cyclist says, “it’s a merge lane & look no body is moving, I don’t think with that much room what I did was unsafe?”
Cops says “A merge lane for one vehicle at a time NOT 2 OR 3, ONE!! What would you say to me giving you a MVI (while looking over the bike) and taking your bike & license?”
Bla, Bla, Bla, 4-5 minutes of back & forth then, traffic starts honking at the cop for blocking 2 lanes & a big finish with “I’m just going to give you a stern lecture this time do you understand??”
Motorcyclist, *Head nod* waited for cop to get in the car and start moving as to not pass his car while it was half in the merge lane for a new fear of loosing his license & bike for a simple traffic violation.
So just wondering if he can do that??
Or was he just uttering threats because his wife makes him clean the house, do the dishes & then becomes a man when he goes to work & puts on the badge & gun.
