    I wouldn't support such a law. I pick the place of the stop for a reason. I don't need some yahoo trying to muck it up by going someplace else. If they stop someplace unsafe despite my best efforts, I'll kindly direct them to a better position.

    The average person has NO idea what would be a safe (or safer) place to stop. What they "think" is a better location could be significantly worse for reasons they couldn't even consider. I don't need you pulling down the road two blocks and stopping in front of the crack house just because you thought it was "safer" up there instead. That is only one minor example.

    No, you pull to the right and stop. I may not be stopping you, I may be stopping the car in front of you or I may be going somewhere totally unrelated. I don't need you poking around looking for a place you deem safe to get out of the way. If I didn't want you to stop there, I wouldn't have turned my lights on yet, like I'm not going to light you up on a bridge or an on ramp. Just pull to the right, stop, and then we'll work it out from there if need be.

    On a side note, my new car has LEDs and more people actually move. Not always correctly, but at least they do get out of the way, as opposed to the old halogens where I'm behind them for two minutes and they never saw me.

    Are you implying I'm opinionated or something???

    Wow, I find it hard to believe that you would get annoyed.

    Yep... I get annoyed when people refuse to move to the right. Especially if I'm trying to stop a car that is 3 or 4 cars ahead. My favorite is this... you light someone up, instead of pulling onto the clear shoulder, they move into the left turn lane and make us both wait at a stoplight before trying into the walgreens or whatever.

    If people would simply pull over to the right, my job would be much easier. Once I get the car stopped, I will then decide if it is necessary for the driver to move their car.

    My state law: Immediately pull as far to the right as possible and stop.

    I time when and where to stop a car, not the other driver.

    Nope, not that I know of either. I'd support a legislation for a law like that though.
    You can always get on the loudspeaker and order people to move to a better spot if your really uncomfortable with it.

    started a topic Do any states have laws like this?

    Do any states have laws like this?

    I was doing a lot of driving today and came across more than one traffic stop occurring on the roadway. So I was wondering if any states had a law that required drivers to pull off the roadway and onto say a side street or into a parking lot, when it is possible to do so, whenever an Officer stops them

    I ask because these people stopped no more than 15 feet from a side street rather than pull into said side street.
