No. You can not be pulled over or forced out of your vehicle during a repossession. It has to, by law, be accomplished "peacably."

No one has the right to enter your property to repo a vehicle. I your vehicle is out in the street, then its fair game.

Does the repo guy have to let you know when he is here when he is taking your vehicle?

The "repo" man does not have to inform you if he is at your residence to repossess your vehicle. Once the vehicle has been repossessed he must call it in to either the local police department or Sheriff department. This will prevent any false stolen car reports. Also, the "repo" man does not have the authority to go into your garage or involve the police in the act of repossessing your vehicle. So, if for some reason the "repo" man does get into contact with you and threatens you by saying that he has called the police, he is lying. Bottom line, just pay your bills and you won't have to worry about the "repo" man.

The repo man will pick up the vehicle anytime and anywhere he can do it while watching out for his personal safety. Repo men have been shot at, cursed at, hit, and everything in-between from the person whose vehicle is being repossesed. I would think that night time would be the safest time for a repo.

Yes, the repo man can still recover the vehicle. The term charge off only describes the status of your account with a financial institution. It doesn't resolve that actual lien that the financial institution has on the vehicle. In other words, your name is on the title but financial institution is the owner/lienholder of the vehicle until the balance on the account has been paid off.
