Pulled over for deletes?

I've seen a post or two about people being pulled over and having been checked for deletes and emissions what nots. Then usually some witch hunt talk after that. Just want to ask how many of you have actually been stopped or cited for this, if you don't mind sharing.

They have to have probable Kause to pull you over, obviously if you dumped a crap load of coal they have that rite, but also only if that state requires smog/emissions testing compliance

Actually that's partly incorrect. For them to stop you reasonable suspision is all that is required for an exhaust violation. Burden of proof is substatially lower. Probable cause is what is established via investigation to support a citation or arrest. Therefore if you have a heads up cop who knows his vehicles he can easily articulate the variences in automotive exhaust especially in diesels. As the new trucks sound like sewing machines wiith all the emission and sound equip installed if your driving around deleted its probaly noticable. Most exhaust or deletes wont get you targeted unless A: they are doing quality of life/sound supression patrol due to city/community complaints of vehicles with modified exhaust creating a distubance. B: Your driving around like a jack wagon drawing attention to yourself or C: you are lifted and the officer can see your lack of cat/muffler or dpf under the truck.
So if you live in a state without emissions requirements you are good, but if you do have the requirements its a lot of money if you get fined. Hope this kind of helps.

I'm just curious to know if it's even happened to some one here? I'm from Michigan and currently live in Minnesota. No vehicle checks in either. I will be moving down to North Carolina where I believe they do do checks. The good thing is I keep my Michigan license and plates though.

You guys do realize that deleteing emisions equipment that is being deleted is not a state requirment but a federal one right?? So even if your state dosent require emissions test on you diesel its still illegal to delete it.

Yes, it is a Federal offense to tamper with/delete emissions control equipment (EPA).. However, a state that does not have a law for emissions equipment inspections on vehicles can not pull you over and issue you a ticket for not having equipment that they do not have a law stating you must have.
The very most that a State (or Local) officer could do (in states without inspections including emissions equipment) is to notify the EPA in writing of the suspected violation. The EPA would then decide if it was worth investigating further (anyone think the EPA is going to knock on your door?).
The above does not apply to vehicles that are registered as a Commercial Vehicle. Those vehicles can be stopped and inspected for emissions equipment at any time and cited because state DOT inspection programs are Federally funded.

aka, like me if you have DOT numbers on or a pulling anything that might be comm. then always be ready to get pulled over. Been pulled over once for it, and they dont have to have "cause" because the "random" inspection is good enough cause. but I'm straight piped and he was more interested in why I didn't have a log book or safty triagles (both I had to argue with him are only required when towing, he was a jerk and kept me for about an hour while he looked up the rules)

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
