How To Stay Alive During a Traffic Stop
Everybody has had a bad encounter with a police officer while
stopped for a traffic violation, here are a couple of tips to keep that
from escalating into a situation you may not walk away from: First, if
the officer does something you think is improper do not argue or try
to assert your rights on the roadside. Get the officer's badge number
and contact his Department when you arrive home. All agencies are
required to take a report of misconduct and that report may stay in
the personnel file of the cop. Second, if you are asked to step out of
the car, do it. The law gives the officer wide discretion to request
this and if you refuse it could escalate the situation. If you follow this
advice you will be better off.
The first 10 days after an arrest are very important because a DMV
hearing must be demanded to save your license. If you or a loved one
has been arrested, issued a speeding ticket, charged with a crime,
