Can I get a ticket for expired registration if Ive already parked and exited the vehicle? 2 Answers as of June 26, 2013

I was driving home and I pulled into my driveway, parked, turned off the engine, and exited the vehicle. Then, a cop pulls up and tells me to get back in the car and writes me a ticket for expired registration. Is this legal?

Yes. The cop saw you driving and the registration is expired. Do you think that your home drive is like a "safe" base?
