What to do during a traffic stop

It is a stressful situation when you see flashing lights in your rearview mirror and the officer pulls you over. A traffic ticket can be a nightmare, but it is easily handled with a little knowledge of what to do.

  • Follow all instructions from the officer carefully. If they hand you a piece of paper or tell you something, that means that is exactly what they expect from you. Do not argue with them or otherwise try to talk yourself out of being pulled over. Arguing increases your chances of getting another ticket for failure to obey an officer (which has no points as such but does go on record as additional evidence against you).

  • Provide license, proof of insurance, and registration when asked without hesitation.

  • Most importantly, stay calm. Traffic tickets can be a hassle but do not need to cause major problems in your life if handled correctly. By following simple instructions from an officer and keeping calm during a traffic stop, your life can return to normal. Always check your traffic ticket before paying it to make sure that there are not any other instructions and follow those as well. The last thing you want is a suspended license for something you were not aware of when you already have enough
