I would like to take a minute to address something he did wrong. I suggest never handing a LEO your unlocked phone. You should always print a hardcopy of your insurance. Otherwise, priceless!

With most insurance apps, you can bring up the insurance card from the lock screen, no unlock required. That said, having a printer version is just easier, I find.

Man, that cop's bad attitude had my blood boiling until he drove off.

I wonder if he treats his friends and family the same way at home.

That trooper had a bad attitude, and in need of a hearing aid. The driver was speaking very clearly and the trooper could not hear him half the time (could be due to road noise but still).

It is obvious that guy had all of his paperwork he needed but that trooper wanted to be 'right' no matter the cost.

I will say I'm sure 99% of us here would not have a clue what is required in this situation and I am sure they do not teach this at the academy as I am sure this is extremely rare to encounter - even still - the trooper could have removed the chip on his shoulder and had an open mind to understand this situation.

Trooper definitely had a bad attitude, but can't blame him for having no idea how international license and registration laws work. No doubt the trooper could have handled the situation better though.

You can blame him. If you don't know something, don't act like a tough guy that you know how things work.

Yeah, the trooper kinda lost it. Oh, well.

Motorists visiting the United States as tourists from countries that have ratified the Convention on International Road Traffic of 1949 may drive in the U.S. for one year with their own national license plates (registration tags) on their own national license plates (registration tags) on their cars and with their own personal drivers' licenses.

I'm not arguing the fact that he was a jerk; there's no doubt that he was. I only meant that you can't blame him for not knowing the federal/international law. Doubtful there's more than a handful on the entire OSP force that would know those off the cuff.

And I'm not arguing that he should know them as well but don't act like you do know them.
