Things To Do When Stopped
Police officers are trained to place a great deal of emphasis on their safety and survival, so they can do the job of protecting others. Many of these guidelines are based on the safety procedures that officers follow.
️Slow down, safely pull over to your right (for keep-right countries) or left (for keep-left countries) when you can and make a complete stop. Please stay in your car with both hands in sight on the steering wheel and waif for the officer to approach. Do not get out of the vehicle unless asked to do so. ️Show the officer your driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance when asked to do so. ️If stopped by a policeman at night the first thing you must do is put your inside dome light on.

When driving a motor vehicle you are required by law to have in your possession a valid driver’s license, proof of vehicle registration and proof of current insurance for the vehicle.

If you are stopped and you do not have all these items with you, you could be arrested, issued a citation and/or have your vehicle towed, depending on the circumstances.

***It is the driver’s responsibility--not the owner’s--to ensure that the vehicle being driven is insured and that the proper documents are in the vehicle.***It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the person driving the vehicle possesses a valid driver’s license.

If you are not sure, ask for the reason you were stopped. Often the reason will be very clear, because you will be given a citation, a written warning or a verbal warning. If you are not told the reason for the stop, you should ask the officer. The reason may have to do with you, your driving, or the conduct of your passenger.

As The Driver, You Are Responsible For:
️The conduct of the passenger. This covers such things as passengers throwing trash out the window, hanging their arms or legs out of the window or acting in a disorderly manner. ️Ensuring that all passengers are wearing their seatbelts and that children are properly secured.

If you do not agree with the reason for the citation, the reason for the stop, or the officer’s demeanor, keep track of all pertinent information about the stop, including the officer’s name and identification number. Officers are unable to handle your complaint on the scene.
