Individual officers don't know every law and regulation. If you feel that you are right, ask for a supervisor during the incident or go to the station and explain what happened. You might want to call state police as tags are a state function.

I doubt that you can recover any losses, but you can go to court and fight the ticket, the officer will probably not even show up to defend his actions. If he does, explain the situation and demand the officer be reprimanded.

Yes. Don't pay the fine. Ask for a court date.

I was incorrectly ticketed for not wearing a seatbelt. Officer claimed he couldn't see my shoulder belt. I knew different. His word against mine. The DA's office attempted twice to set a court date, officer declined both times to show. They dropped it.

If you know you are in the right, go to court. Doubt it will go that far.

Every states laws are different.

In Ca you get temporary registration until your new plates arrive, and you are not allowed to put on the old plates.

Your mistake was not leaving the paper/plastic dealer plates on. And you should have showed him your temporary reg, not just hand him all the papers you have.

Sure, states are different . . . but if the cop is wrong . . . he's wrong . . . and when it comes to things like that , , , being wrong is a violation of his duties and should be punished.

There is a saying, you can beat the rap but you can't beat the ride, as in this case. Your first mistake was putting the plates from your old vehicle on your new one with out the transfer. You should remove the plates from any vehicle that you sell for any reason, but don't put them on another vehicle that they do not belong on. Now with the first mistake you got punished by an ignorant cop that should have let you go but he was being a jerk after catching you on the first mistake. You will probably beat the ticket but will not be compensated and further.

BTW
he wanted to know why I had those plates on there it was against the law false and futigious registration
He was right about that

If the dealer gives you a temp plate there is a reason for it! They are not free in NJ, and it is against the law to display your old tags until the Registration is transferred. Your state laws are not secret, and you should have access to them. I'm guessing you will learn more by reading your laws than you will by asking on a toy helicopter forum.

Thanks

Are you sure he is wrong, or just wanting to hang a cop?

If he's wrong, I want to hang him.
If their job didn't affect the lives of others so much, I wouldn't be so concerned.
But since they do, I demand they do their job properly.

They keep hiding behind "protect and serve" so that's exactly what I expect.

Here is the law in your state.

If you want to switch your current license plates from a recently sold vehicle, you are eligible to do that within 31 days of purchasing a new one. This new vehicle must be titled first; usually, titling and registering can be done at the same time.

You must also pay a $9.75 plate-transfer fee.

It seems the process can't be done impatiently from a dealer, which is why they gave you the temp plates.

Thanks

You simply don't understand.

For me, it's not a matter of disrespect, it's a matter of expecting the police to do their job properly and professionally.

And if they can't do that then they should find a job that's not so demanding.

I have no problem with cops that do NOT bring attitude, arrogance and incompetence to the job.

Technically speaking, the cop was NOT wrong. Was he a bit of a putz for doing what he did? Maybe. But apparently you failed to show him the temporary paper plate you were required to place on the new vehicle, which probably would have at least helped. Technically YOU were breaking the law. The plates were registered to a completely different vehicle, and by law can NOT be displayed or used on any other vehicle than the one it is registered to. PERIOD.

up here they say if the papers (for a old plate/number) are in the mail it's league to drive, and if you don't have a plate/number you then need a paper plate to drive until you get the new plate/new number

And here in TX, plates don't transfer, period! Michigan, it's like this started out (or at least was last time I dealt with vehicles there) - you trade a car, dealer does paper, old plate goes on new car, no temp plate, all is good. TX,temp plate mandatory, old plate cannot be reused - ever. No consistency that I have seen whatsoever.
