Any LEOs online that may be able to answer a question?
#1
A friend of mine was stopped while driving his motorcycle.

The local borough LEO looked his bike over real good and wrote him a ticket for having a tire that does not pass inspection.

He just eyeballed it.

No gauge or penny/dime test or anything.

Just looked it over and wrote him up.

By law, is the LEO allowed to write him for for a bald tire w/o any type of test of the tread?

Any of our own from the forum may be able to answer this question for me due to your own PD training.

Thanks.

God bless!!

If it's clearly bald, then he wouldn't need to check it with a depth gauge. If it had tread, then I would encourage your friend to document the tread depth and take a hearing if the officer was wrong.
He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."
