1. Many people interact with the police on the road, so behind the wheel behaviour is very important. If the police gives you a sign to stop when you are driving — pull over, turn the engine off and put your hands on the wheel. For security purposes, the police need to see your hands. This is very important and the biggest cause of armed incidents. Tell any passengers to keep their hands on the dash or the seat in front of them and keep their mouths shut. If the law enforcement officer cannot see your hands, the officer might think you are hiding evidence or concealing a weapon.
2. Never argue with the police, don’t raise your voice at him and don’t swear – it will only worsen the situation. Keep calm and try to avoid panic responses. Panic can blur the communication lines and many bad things can happen when you don’t listen to what the law enforcement officers communicates to you.
3. Always ask if you are free to go. This will help you figure out whether you are under arrest. Also it will give the police officer the confirmation of his formal control of the encounter. The police can also approach you in a public place at any time for almost any reason. Depending on how the police approach, you may be able to avoid interacting with the police and in some other cases you will not be free to go. Keep in mind that the police are looking for criminal activity, even during seemingly friendly conversations.
4. Your rights when in a car are reduced because you have a lesser level of privacy. The Supreme Court has recognized the mobile nature of cars and their contents. Because of this, special rules have been developed regarding automobiles. Technically, a police encounter can occur before the officer initiates a traffic stop. Have your license, registration, and insurance cards readily available. Partially roll down the window enough to speak with the officer and hand documents through the window and turn on your interior dome lights if it is dark.
