RFH, you mean to tell me that the the peace officer could not get you cuz you were out of his county boundary?....Oooooo, you are the lucky one!
I only go short bursts of speed here in Kent. Just my luck if I go jammin on a nice stretch of road, the radar will get me.
Well just to repeat....You are lucky...
Drive safe..

:D

I guess you're lucky, here in Michigan, police can exceed their jurisdiction by a few miles if they are actively pursuing someone. Meaning they can just follow you and then turn on the lights.

I know for a fact that he could have wrote you regardless of his jurisdiction if he wanted to. Washington state has the mutual police power law on the books which in a nutshell means that a sworn law enforcement officer in the state of Washington can write a citation or take appropriate police action throughout the state regardless of their jurisdictional boundaries (i.e a Seattle cop can give you a ticket in Snohomish county if he was cruising through on official business and saw you commit a violation). He was just being nice, consider yourself lucky. I'm just trying to let you know for future reference.

Your luckey RFL, that jurisdiction does not really aply in some parts of N.C. Because one of my friends was in persuit of a black srt-10 on Fort Bragg one day and when he turned on his light the truck dropped a gear and just walked away. They persued him about 10 to 15 miles off post untill the state troopers got involved. And needless to say after out running the MP's, local police and the state troopers he got away. I found this out the day after because our BN commander pulled me into his office to see if it was my truck. I was kind of glad i didnt have a black truck.
