If You Are Stopped By The Police

When you see the flashing red lights in your rearview mirror, pull over to the right as quickly and as safely as possible.

Turn on your interior dome light, roll down your window an inch or more and wait for the officer. Don’t start rummaging through your glove box for documents. Wait for the officer to ask for them.

Always be polite and courteous to the officer, even if he is not to you. Speak clearly and deliberately. Remember that from the moment the officer arrives at your window he is looking for indications that you are under the influence of alcohol including slurred speech, and fumbling for documents.

Do not joke with the officer under any circumstances. You should assume that anything you say to the officer can and will be used against you. Under the law, you do not have to answer any questions or take any tests asked of you by the officer.
