Pulled Over By The Police? #3180

Being pulled over by a police officer can be as stressful for the officer as it is for the motorist. Although the majority of people are law-abiding citizens, a police officer must still be overly cautious during all traffic stops. Here are a few tips to follow when being stopped by the police.

1. Pull off of the road as far to the right as safely possible.
2. Stay in your vehicle unless asked to get out.
3. Turn on the interior light if the stop occurs at night.
4. Keep both hands on the steering wheel and do not make sudden movements.
5. If you are carrying a firearm, advise the officer of the weapon and its location.
6. Advise the officer if you need to reach for your license or registration.
7. If you are being stopped at night and you are driving alone, simply acknowledge the officer by turning on your flashers and driving at a reduced rate of speed to the nearest well lit area.

Following these simple tips will make traffic stop less stressful for everyone involved.

Rear seat seatbelt use can save your life as a driver! #27

Even if you're riding in the front seat and wearing your seatbelt you can avoid having rear seat passengers becoming projectiles by having them wear their seatbelts. A recent study revealed that wearing a seatbelt in the backseat of a car could dramatically reduce the risk of death and injury to front-seat occupants. In a review of over 100,000 automobile accidents, researchers concluded that the use of seatbelts in the backseats could have reduced fatal injuries to front-seat occupants by as much as 80%.
