  1. You learn very fast that if you have their keys thee is much less of a chance that the stop will turn into a high speed pursuit. I didn’t take the keys on every stop, only those that would raise my suspicion that there may be a future dash in the drivers mind. Very often this was the proper action as further inquiry resulted in active warrants or assorted felonies.


    Hope this helps

  2. vehicle inspection tests are conducted to ensure that a vehicle is safe to operate. during the vehicle inspection test, you will be expected to explain or show your knowledge of the vehicle inspection process.

    during the vehicle inspection test, you must show that the vehicle is safe to drive. you will have to walk around the vehicle and point to or touch each item and explain to the examiner what you are checking and why. you will not have to crawl under the hood or under the vehicle. the brake lights, emergency flashers, turn signals, and horn must be checked. if any of these items do not work, the skills and road portions of the test will be postponed.

  3. 1. introduce who they are ("I am Officer X of X Department) and why they pulled you over (I pulled you over because you were doing X amount over the speed limit)

    2. Take your information, such as your ID, Registration and Insurance Information (IF THAT IS NEEDED)

    3. Go back to their car, most likely they have already run your tags, now they are just comparing your information and then writing a ticket / warning

    4. They come back to the car, have you sign the ticket, maybe they even give you a court date.

    This is just what I know from my sister explaining what she does in her traffic stops.

    Also per her:

    "Do you know why I pulled you over"

    "Do you know how fast you were going"

    and various other "Do you know" statements are entrapment. You don't have to answer those.

    For example:

    "Do you know why I pulled you over?"

    If you answer that with... lets say... "I wasn't wearing my seatbelt?" and they really pulled you over for your window tint, now they have two tickets for you.
