What Is the Best Way to Interact With a Police Officer when Pulled Over?

Posted on

Traffic stops are standard on U.S. streets. This video explains what to do if you are pulled over by a police officer. First, remain in the vehicle unless you are instructed to exit. No matter what the reason for your arrest, do not pull over and jump out to your car to try to explain yourself to the police. The officer will come by your car and ask you questions in due time.

Similarly, if you are asked to step out of the car, comply with the instructions. Police do not need legal justification to ask you or your passengers to step out of your vehicle. Watch this video to learn more.
