Think twice before you dangle something from your rear view mirror. All it does is give a dirty cop a reason to stop you…. and they do.
It’s called an “obstruction of vision”. And the courts uphold the stop.
Once the stop is made, the officer can claim, wrongfully or otherwise, that he smells marijuana in the car, or intoxicants on your breath.
…Or whatever will provide the legal authority to order you out of your car and search it. If he finds a roach you didn’t know was there, you’re hauled to jail. Why?
If it’s your car or you’re the driver, it’s called “constructive possession.”
So never dangle baby shoes, high school tassels, and especially air fresheners from your rear view mirror.
