Pointers You Need to Know When Getting Pulled OverLast Updated February 3, 2017
Getting pulled over by the police can be stressful or frightening, so keep in mind some safe and sane pointers. What should you do? Pull over as quickly and safely as you can. Be respectful to the officer. Do not become angry or emotional. Tell the truth. (In other words, if you were going 50 miles per hour, don’t claim it was 25.)
What shouldn’t you do? Put yourself in danger by trying to stop in the middle of traffic or doing a U-turn. Don’t yell at or threaten the officer. Don’t try to talk yourself out of it. (Crying is ok, but don’t fake it).
Take your ticket calmly. You can always contest it in court if it’s not fair.
