We have some improvements in the works that we're excited for you to experience.
to try our new, faster beta site.
We will be maintaining our current version of the site until the middle of CY 2023,
so you can switch back as our improvements continue.
Defense to resisting law enforcement. Creates a defense to resisting law enforcement for a motorist who refuses to stop after being ordered to do so because the motorist was unable to determine whether the law enforcement officer was actually a law enforcement officer. Provides that the defense applies only if: (1) the motorist was unable to determine whether the officer was actually a law enforcement officer because visibility was reduced or because the officer was in an unmarked vehicle; (2) the motorist's refusal to stop lasted only long enough to determine whether the officer was actually a law enforcement officer or to drive to a populated location; and (3) after being ordered to stop, the motorist did not speed or operate the motor vehicle in a manner that endangered or could have endangered any person.
