If my registration is up to date, can a cop pull me over for registration problems?
I was driving home yesterday when a police officer pulled me over just outside of my town. Everything seemed routine, asked me for my license and registration, which I politely gave to him. The officer told me that I was pulled over because my stickers were out of date, however, I know this to be false because I just got new stickers put on the car (its a new car). The officer, once hearing my objection, hesitated and then said that he actually pulled me over because I looked suspicious. Apparently I was looking at my seat (where my purse was) too much or something. The officer let me go without warning or ticket. Even if I looked suspicious, does that give reason to pull me over for valid registration stickers?
