No, I think my post speaks for itself, but to clarify, evasion (as suggested in your original post) is not a reasonable tactic when challenged by an unmarked vehicle, at least initially, because the chance of it being an impostor is vastly outweighed by the probability it is a LEO.

I mention filing suit in the event it is an illegal stop conducted by LEOs. The point is, most of the time, it will be a cop, and one should cooperate regardless.

If other indicators lead common sense to conclude that it is a criminal stop, then, perhaps, evasion becomes a reasonable option.

Time for me to go do some traffic stops. Please don't evade my funky (if legally marked) vehicle and my proper (if wrinkled) uniform...
