What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Georgia
We've got a car we just don't have the money to fix at the moment. It's been in our front yard since it broke down and we've not had the money or time to fix it. But I'm not telling the full story, let me rewind.
We had a dirty yard for a little while and we had a 'nice' cop come up and gave us a week to clean our yard up. We cleaned it up. He said nothing about the truck on our property, gave us not a word about it. The second we clean up the yard he tells us to clean up the truck and just pump up the tires. We did that. Now he's giving us a $300 dollar ticket even though we did was he asked.
Well. This is my question. The truck is only slightly broken down. We could get it working in a couple days time if we had the money and clean weather to get out there to work on it. Is it lawful for a cop to harass a family for 2 weeks on different charges then give them a $300 ticket for an 'abandoned' truck that's on private property and is NOT abandoned?
