Pelican Bay - traffic stop

#1

Post by Rex B » Sun Oct 16, 2016 9:17 pm

Pelican Bay is a mobile home community North of Azle. I have a shop building there and spend a couple days a week there. I was leaving - (white Shelby Mustang with silver stripes) I drove past the Pelican Bay PD cruiser at the entrance. He hit the lights, and I pulled over. sigh. I get out my DL and CHL, roll both windows down. Young cop hops out and trots over to the window.

Cop: "Sir, the reason I stopped you is you have no front license plate"
Me: Yessir (handing DL and CHL)
Cop: (Quick look at CHL) "You have a CHL? Have a good afternoon sir!"

Shortest traffic stop yet. I guess I'll hang that tag back on the front before I take it to the shop again.

Rex B, so you live in the general vicinity of Azle? If so we are practically neighbors, hope to bump into you at Azle walmart!

General question, what happened to the idea of DFW members breakfast?

I got pulled over by DPS on I-10 headed to San Antonio, same reason, no front plate on a Camaro. Put my dl and chl on the dash, after asking where my gun was, I told him on my hip, he said that was fine. He told me I should have a front plate and said have a nice day.

Same thing happened to me in Clifton, TX on an early Sunday morning last month. I've been driving that car without a front plate for 10 years and this was the first time ever stopped for that reason. Showed DL and CHL, told him gun was in the glove box. He asked for insurance, which I told him was also in the glove box. "That's OK" - reached over my gun to get the insurance paper. Left with a warning. Pleasant stop. (Finally got a front plate, don't want any more reasons to get stopped).

The reason I didn't get my insurance out before, was that the top was down and he would have easily seen me reaching for something, so I just left my hands on the wheel until asked.

Actually, I live 30 miles away in the Keller area.
I bought the shop building years ago.

If I see you, you will be the first open-carry I have seen. Or at least noticed.
