DUI Informants in California

You're driving home, and out of the blue an officer stops you.  You've done nothing wrong.  What happened?  In this age of cell phones, you probably were "ratted out" by an informant.  It has become more common in California for another motorist to notify police of a possible DUI.  You know, that motorist you accidently cut off, or the one who was behind you when you swerved slightly.

While informants are important, an officer still needs a reason to stop you.  However, since the officer is now observing you closely, any Vehicle Code violation will suffice to initiate a stop.  In some cases, where the informant is reliable or known to the police, that may suffice for a stop by the officer.
