What To Do When You Get Pulled Over

I'm not saying I was pulled over yet, but in my last driving lesson, my instructor told me this. So basically, the first thing you want to do is put on your emergency blinkers, acknowledging that you will cooperate with the peace officer. If you're on a freeway, get off of it and go to a side street or parking lot where the peace officer won't get hit easily. Then, after you've pulled over, turn off the engine, put both hands on top of the steering wheel, and lower your window. When asked for your driver's license and registration, calmly say, "Officer, my license is in [location of the license] and my registration is in [location of the registration]. May I get them?" This acknowledges that you will get your license out of the wallet in your back pocket, not a gun. Hopefully, these tips can get you out of a ticket. Maybe I'll write when I get pulled over... That's for another time...
