    log in - ped stop

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of this highlighted part:

    [Two months before he died someone logged him in as a ped stop.]

    I haven't found any definition for "ped stop"!

    What does it mean to "lof someone in as a ped stop"

    Thanks.

    Googling ped stop took me to this site:

    Flickr: Pedstop Group

    It looks like 'somebody logged him in as a member of the Pedstop racing team.'

    Please put your quotes in inverted commas instead of brackets.

    but what does that mean? "It's Cold Case Tv series, Season 7 episode 8 - China town"

    What does this mean? "somebody logged him in as a member of the Pedstop racing team.'??

    Also, "logged him in" means "log in under his name"?

    Thanks .

    Re: log in - ped stop

    From the text given, it sounds as if the person who died had previously been stopped by a police officer while walking. Perhaps he crossed the road in an undesignated area or dropped some litter or committed some other perceived infraction while on foot. He wasn't arrested, but police must make a report of any incident when they stop and question a person. So a "ped stop" means a "pedestrian stop", and "logged him in" means the officer filed a report of a field interview.

    "PC" stands for "probable cause." In the US the police can't legally stop and question you while you're driving for no reason, they have to have a valid, legal reason. Sometimes they look really hard for that reason if your vehicle seems suspicious to them - for example, if you have something decorative hanging from your rear-view mirror, they could say they stopped you for having an "obstructed view." Other minor infractions they often use for probable cause are not properly signalling for a turn or having a burned-out license plate light. Once they've stopped you, they'll ask casually "Do you mind if we take a look inside your car?" Most citizens automatically agree because they are not aware that they have the legal right to say "I do not consent to any searches."
