King County Court Rules Traffic Stop Unlawful: March 23, 2012

Posted by Andrea Robertson on Jul 05, 2013 | 0 Comments

On March 23, 2012, a King County Superior Court judge ruled on appeal the trial court was court correct to dismiss a DUI charge against our client. This decision affirms the ruling in State v. Prado that momentarily crossing a lane divider on the roadway without endangering any other traffic is not a lawful basis for police to make a traffic stop. Further, it is appropriate for a trial judge to consider the reliability of police evidence that is used to make a traffic stop, such as calibration of a patrol car speedometer.
