What happens when you get a driving on suspended license in california?
To make a long story short I was driving on highway a sheriff came out of nowhere making it seem like he was in a hury to get past me and two other vehicles. He went ahead all three cars and since I was ahead of the other two he merged onto my lane in front of me. Suddenly he merged onto the shoulder let me and one other car pass he then go back into traffic. Got behind me and pulled me over. His reason was because I'm on probation. I was driving a car not registered to me. Obviously he had nothing better to do then to run my plates. I didn't break no traffic law.
Probation terms/conditions often include a 4th Amendment waiver. Do you have a 4th waiver??
