Can a cop follow you for more than 3 Miles/3 Turns?

I've heard a lot of talk that a cop can't follow you for more than 3 miles or 3 turns without pulling you over.

I.E. a cop can't be bored, and simply follow me waiting for me to break a law that he's able to pull me over for.

They say it's entrapment, but I'm almost positive that wouldn't be the term.

Any officers have similar rules in their departments, or know this is bullshit? I have a feeling it's not true.

They're cops. They get to do pretty much whatever the hell they want.

Oh, and just because a cop is behind you doesn't mean he's following you. And even if he was it wouldn't be entrapment. To entrap someone, the cop would have to do something that would encourage you to break a law you wouldn't normally have incentive to break.

Yeah, I knew it wasn't called entrapment.

I turn whenever I see cops, it's just a habit I guess. I've been lucky enough to never have been pulled over. Knock on wood.

fm.illuminatus has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Cops can do anything because they have a badge. If they violate the law (or your rights) just lie about it in court about it and aren't held accountable. If a cop is following you around, he's probably "fishing" for a ticket, in other words trying to find an excuse to pull you over.

Just because there are a few cops who you didn't think treated you fairly, doesn't mean all cops are crooked.

I've had quite a few run-ins with law enforcement, and although I may not have always liked the results, I respected them because after thinking about it, they treated me with respect as long as I showed them it in return.

I've also witnessed cops lying about things in order to make a charge stick in court. (They didn't switch breathalizer tips in between people, but lied and said he did, and also lied about giving the sober driver a warning, although she never received one.)

But at the end of the day, Cops aren't out to get you, they have better things to do, and lives to live.

Just because you've had a bad experience, whether you provoked it or he was just a dick, does not make all cops bad.

Cops dont "fish" for tickets. Most cops nowdays dont even have a quota, which dispells the "end of the month" myth.

Around here, the only time cops look for speeders on non-highway roads is when the community has pressured the police force to crack down on speeders. They dont do it for their own personal kicks.
