Can I legally record a police officer during a traffic stop?

The same damn cop keeps pulling me over and he's a real jacka** every time. I don't know what I did to him but it feels like he has it out for me. Can I record our conversation if it happens again and use it against him? Is that legal?

    You can record any conversation between two parties as long as you are one of the parties. You do not have to advise the other party that the conversation is being recorded.
