Don’t argue with the police officer Don’t be aggressive or unnecessarily argumentative with a police officer. It won’t help the situation and it certainly won’t solve anything. Answer questions with simple, to-the-point responses and do as you are asked, within reason. The faster the police officer has the information he or she needs, the faster you can be on your way.
Don’t forget your rights Last but not least, never forget your rights as a driver and a citizen. In this day and age when not all police officers follow the rules and use appropriate behaviors when dealing with suspects/perpetrators/innocent bystanders, it’s crucial that you know your legal rights so that you are not taken advantage of at a traffic stop, or any encounter with a law enforcer.
