FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

Is it true that police officers can’t pull you over after following you for more than 6 blocks?

No, there is no such limit. In some cases, an officer may be following you because they are observing your driving–and it may take several blocks or miles before they determine if a traffic stop is necessary . Of course, in many instances, it’s likely you’re not being followed at all. The officer may simply be going in the same general direction you are!
