A friend of mine went in arguing an aggressive “no cargo, no passenger” exception and he is approached by a Police Officer after the hearing.
Officer told my friend in secret that if you are traveling and get pulled over we are supposed to let you go as soon as you announce that you are not for hire. He said that every state legislature has early bills that clearly state the “for hire” requirement to invoke the motor vehicle code. He then added that the statutes, which are not law, just reference to the law, have conveniently removed /dropped the “offered to the public for hire” language.
My friend has won every ticket of no plate, no registration, no insurance, no operator license for the last several years. My friend wants to remain anonymous and wants to keep the Officer as a confidant.
I have recently tried to enter a Nebraska 1905 bill that said just that in a traffic case of mine the judge denied the exhibit, so now I am going back to the State archives and get a certified copy of the original bill, he will be forced to accept that evidence, as a matter of law. They gave me 90 days, and they know I won my case, stay tuned.
I, Paul John Hansen, recently put a Not FOR HIRE plate on my motorcycle and just last week a cop pulled up read it and then pulled around me and went on his way.
The whole story will come soon.
(( It is believed that even if you have a state plate, by placing a “NOT FOR HIRE” below it it takes you out of the scope of the Vehicle Statutes and Municipal Codes. This is yet to be tested. ))
