    Justified: Private roadway, perhaps with a sign saying no video.

    its a private roadway/semiprivate roadway???
    are on duty police allowed to patrol in an official capacity on private property, or was this an off duty being paid for security? Or maybe they were having a problem with kids racing, and collecting their information would make them easier to find. I didn`t see a police badge...

    this is an example of a good police officer!
    1) he recognized a legal issue
    2) he was firm, respectful and informative about what he wanted the kids to do
    3) he delivered proper punishment (in this case, just a warning, not a ticket)

    He was neither aggressive nor unreasonable, so stop hating

    buttsdowhat "I don`t think he got a ticket."

    This happened on April 17th on the Garden State Parkway. The ticket read "videotaping on authority property" wheteverthehell that means.

    Actually.. it is the law. Has been since the Patriot Act nationally, and in some places longer than that. It is illegal to photograph tunnels, bridges, or locations of mass transit, which includes pretty much any major roadway in the U.S. Now, it`s still ridiculous.. but not because of the cop.

    A deputy sheriff shooed me off of an airport side road in 2004.
    I was trying to film a 747 landing at DTW.

    No, Dumbass. The officer clearly said they were on a semi-private roadway, not a public roadway.

    Really? Can you back that up? I couldn`t find any mention of photography in the act, but found other sources that said it is not prohibited.

    Anyway, the Garden State Parkway and the NJ Turnpike are private roads, so they do get to have more rules than others. That being said, the statutes (19:9-1.22 Filming, photographing or videotaping on the Roadway prohibited, except as authorized) don`t really seem to fit what happened here.

    You are correct nettech.

    Though I assume most of the time police officers just no the general gist of whats legal and whats not and basically filming on the GSP is illegal unless you continue driving as they do it which most people will stop to film something.

    Unless people require cops to actually know the law things like this will continue to happen.

    That`s your idea of a good officer paco? someone who doesn`t know the law?

    He was issued a ticket because of that gigantic spoiler on the back of the car. This gave the officer reasonable cause to believe he and the passenger were Class 2 Tools, (or, Class B Chavs, for you British folk) which upon further inspection was proven. Ticket issued. Case closed, and another riccer pissed off.

    @coyoteking: It`s kind of like an amusement park. It`s private property, but any member of the public can pay to use it.

    And if you`ve ever driven on the GSP or the NJ Turnpike, you`ll appreciate my amusement park analogy!

    Another example is a shopping mall (without the paying to use part). It`s private property, but is open to the public to use subject to their rules.

    >>>Signed agreement prepared by the Authority requiring Licensee to reimburse the Authority for all overtime, vehicle use, and administrative overhead per personnel assigned to filming project <<

    This is why NJTA restricts filming, so they can make a buck from it. It has NOTHING to do with the patriot act.

    Do they really have triangle shaped badges there? No filming in the whole state, that sounds odd, is this just some fake video to prove another stupid point?

    I would have let the douchebag give me a ticket, then make sure the story was plastered all over the media. A lawyer would have a field day with this. There`s no way that it is illegal to record video on a road. He`s just another idiot cop.

    Normaly I`m very much against cops oversteping their boundaries, but in this case:

    - Cop was reasonable and polite
    - Rule/Law = drat ass stupid

    Doing anything with the NJTA is a pain in the ass in general. NJ State police(NJSP) is the agency charged with patrolling the turnpike. The NJSP has a distinct triangular badge. These guys seemed to be trying to bait a police action. Officer responded and acted properly in this matter in my opinion.

    "Really? Can you back that up?"

    Of course. Read the instructional guidelines to state DOTs from Homeland Security in "Protecting America`s Roads, Bridges and Tunnels: The Role of State DOTs in Homeland Security"

    Stupid law. If someone wanted to video something bad enough there are many different ways to do it surreptitiously w/o being observed.
