This episode addresses the topic of,“Uh-oh, I have been pulled over by the police, now what?”-2 (Part 2 of 2 part episode)
If you are pulled over, immediately signal and being pulling over to a safe shoulder or location, do not ever flee. Keep your hands on the wheel in sight of the police. Roll your window down, if they ask “Do you know why I pulled you over?” Answer only, “No.” (or say nothing in the alternative). When they ask for your license and registration, say, “I am reaching for my license and registration now.” Move slowly and gather your license and registration. They will usually run your license plate, registration, driver’s license to check for stolen cars, arrest warrants, etc.. Say nothing and sit quietly in your car during this period. Do not insult the police or say anything other than “no” when asked why you were pulled over. Take mental notice of their badge number and or other identifying information (for your records if the stop was illegal). Do not confront the police. If you are asked for consent to search the car, say “No.” They may search it anyway. Again, say nothing. If you are arrested, say nothing. Ask for a lawyer as soon as you arrive at the booking station. Do not say anything other than the fact that you want a lawyer. If you have other people in the car do not speak to each other. Stay quiet.
