Those who detects every type of radar and laser signal may be feasible, when you are at home and have the luxury of time to study them. But when you are out on the road and driving, this is something that is nearly impossible to happen. Come to think of it, you are driving what, 40 to 60 miles an hour, do you think you would slow down in a certain section of the road only to identify what type of speed radar it is? Of course not!
While the knowledge of such can arm you on what actions to be made, there are things that you could do to beat the system or at least, better your odds if pulled up and caught by the authority.
Kill Your Attitude
It is never wise to raise an attitude with the police. Doing so would only heighten your chance of leniency. What you want the police to do rather are for them to like you.
Turn Off Your Car and Open the Interior Lights
Put your hands at the 10 and 2 on steering wheel and then, remove your hat or sunglasses. There are people who even tell you to put your keys on roof of the car as a sign of complete submission. And by no means, you should never step out of the vehicle.
The objective of this thing is taking any unnecessary tension out of the situation. Remember, you want the police to be comfortable with you. Try imagining these kinds of people as well as dangers that officers have to deal with on a daily basis. Just be polite and respectful.
Do what You are Told
Once all the basics are through, then keep your pleas to yourself. Most officers won’t be speaking to you until they are done with the basics. Think of it as a litmus test for hardheaded drivers. Then by the time when you have given your information, ask them politely if you could discuss with them about your violation.
If you personally know that you’ve violated the law, then accept it and tell the officer they were right for pulling you over. Honest police will be admitting that there’s a lot of pride in their line of work and if you can satisfy this “pride” factor, there are times that officers do not feel the need for punishing you further. The better the officer feels, the higher the probability that they will let you go.
