    No actually it's the same thing. Each state in the union retains it's own sovereignty. When you visit another state you are subject to it's laws just as if visiting another country. Now there are some interstate compacts that effect the states relations to each other, however a state's laws apply to everyone in the state not just citizens of the state.

      In fact did you know you can be tried in two different states for the exact same offense and it's not double jeopardy.

        Although the settling Supreme Court decision was a capital case they did not base their decision on the matter of the level of the crime but the fact that both states were seperate sovereign entitites.

          When does sovereignty of state apply to the traffic and equipment laws when traveling across country? One law I can think of off the top of my head is... if I was an Arizona resident, they have much more lax laws on window tint. If I drive to Michigan, how can a law enforcement official enforce a local law on me if I'm a citizen of another state with different laws? This very situation was discussed in my limited law class in college and the professor and text both agreed that the law was not enforceable on an out of state citizen.

          What about motorcycle helmet laws in particular?

          Thank you for the thoughtful response. I would guess that a Capital crime that was committed that fell into the jurisdiction of two states could possibly be tried by the state first and in another state tried in a Federal court and not be considered Double Jeopardy?

          OK, another "practical" example. I was a resident of Wisconsin. Up until recently, Wisconsin did not have a "proof of insurance" requirement. When I traveled to Minnesota, I was not required to provide proof because Wisconsin didn't require it.

          Vehicle Licensing requirements are also different between the states. I can transfer plates to any vehicle. In Minnesota, plates are not transferable and it is a VERY serious offense if you do that. Felony Tax Evasion.

          Thank you for the example. It clears a lot of that up. Still not sold on the window tint applicability though. I would think that both states have a similar law and if I was a resident of another state and I still met the equipment requirements of my home state, no law has been broken.

          As far as traveling to another country, there is diplomatic immunity for this very reason.

            Yes you were. Wisconsin residents were (are) tagged for no proof insurance in Minnesota all the time.

              Diplomatic Immunity? How do you figure you have diplomatic immunity?

              Just because I am visiting another country does not grant me diplomatic immunity...Think you should have paid more attention in your limited law class in college
