Ever Got a Ticket For This?

Come to a STOP sign & stop but keep your feet on the pegs? Back in high school (long ago) we always tried to keep our feet on the pegs when we stopped. Just for fun. We got good at it. Well a friend did that & got a ticket. He told the cop he stopped but the cop said "No you didn't, you didn't put a foot down." But I stopped! "Boy I can double the cost if you keep talking!" After that whenever we were all in a car & stopped at that location we opened all the doors, put a foot on the road, then continued on. Just for laughs. Sometimes I still stop feet up but I watch for cops when I do. Anyone else been ticketed for this? Curious if it's common or just in my little one horse home town.

Interesting, never thought about it until now... In my 40-yrs of riding, I get pulled over 2-3x a year. And I've never gotten a ticket for anything! But I've gotten plenty in car to make up for that!

One time at traffic school, cop teaching it told us they look for head-bob as sign driver came to complete stop. So now I just automatically bob my head at stops regardless if I came to complete stop or not. On bike, I just put foot down and "walk" it a step, not put any weight on it and not really stopping either. :)
