Teacher, apparently you don't live in Sevier County or do not have kids that drive in Sevier County.
The only requirement for a teenager to be  pulled over in Sevier County is to have a "kids" car. Maybe the window was not rolled down to the "specific" level, perhaps there was more than one teen in the car,  it doesn't matter, they are pulled over regardless.
My kids are "the good ones", well most of the time, anyway, like I said, there doesn't have to be a reason to be pulled over here, only being a teenager with a nice car. I'm glad you support our law enforcement for their thankless job, someones got to do it.

This is on the noise ordinance. I live in the far east corner of Knox County and my house is about 130 feet back from the road. When someone drives down my road or stops to visit at the house across from me, with all that "booming" going on, it rattles the windows in my house. So, sorry, but just turning it down at traffic lights is not sufficient in my opinion.  Angry I'm sure young people doing this, think I'm just an old-fogey; but, do they not have enough sense to realize this is damaging their hearing? We hear about road rage happening all over the country; maybe, it's not so much the way someone drives, but the loud crap bothering other drivers. I don't own a gun, and it's probably a good thing. These inconsiderate people's vehicle would be my first target. Wouldn't want to hurt them, but I sure would like to shoot the h*ll out of their stereo systems. Tongue

Kearn, I turn mine down because it can be heard one lane over--that is out of respect for other drivers.  It cannot be heard 130 feet away.  I also do not have subwoofers so no 'booming' comes from my car.

I would much rather have loud music than an attitude like your's kearn.

Living with my brother while growing up did rattle everything. He always has his music loud. I have had cars rattle my windows worse than music does.

Im with M.Ousley on this one.  I dont have a loud stereo that booms but I do have a powerful vehicle and I like to be able to hear it.   I think that if they are going to enforce this law on cars driving around, It should be enforced on radio stations that set up their portable DJ outside a business so when I pump my gas at a gas station, I cant hear myself think.  It should also be enforced at car dealerships, anyone been by Rogers Cadillac lately when they are calling someone over the intercom, its extremely loud and I can hear it over my stereo WHEN my windows are rolled up.   If its fair it needs to be fair for all.

Sorry folks, this link is out of date now.  The comic now has nothing to do with the noise ordinance.

That sucks Clint.  I would just show up on your court date with your zoning info and ask the officer present to detail how he determined that you were being too loud.  I'm not sure if there is a decibel level that actually makes you cross the line so to speak, but I bet he didn't measure with any instrument and just arbitrarily decided you were too loud.  Good luck with your case.


(BTW, we do business with Stant in Pine Bluff   Cool)

<strong> 
Anyone in Sevier County knows that anytime a teenager is pulled over, for any reason, they are taken out of their car and searched, vehicle searched etc. When they don't find anything, they search again. I think it is complete discrimination but I choose to live here so we just accept it...</strong>

Happens in many small towns in this country - since teenagers don't vote. Smiley  When challenged, the PDs trot out the "but we are keeping them SAFE" line. Tell the kids to verbally refuse search when pulled over for something daft like speeding or low tires, and make sure they are standing in front of the cruiser if asked to get out of the car. (so the video can be used later if needed) Smiley

If they refuse a search it can grant probable cause to the officer to go ahead and search anyway.  It is a lose-lose situation.

Check out:  http://www.flexyourrights.org/facts/probable-cause-definition.html

This site doesn't quite agree with the statement I just made, but I know for a fact that refusing a search has ended up leading to searches.

One thing to remember is to dial 911 on your cell phone when pulled over THEN if the officer is rude or not following the correct procedures it will then be recorded as all 911 calls are recorded. The tapes could then be used in court against the officer.
Personally if my kid was countiually stopped I would follow my kid and tape the stop and ask why they stopped my kid and record it as well. He better have good reason to stop my kid or a nice lawsuit would entail.

Pretty sure that would be illegal Keith.  Emergency 911 services should ONLY be used in the case of an emergency, not to record a traffic stop.  Tying up the dispatcher could mean that someone with a real emergency doesn't get aid in time.   Angry
