Most Common Reason for Contact with the Police is Being a Driver in a Traffic Stop

Statistics Show then Most Common Reason for Contact with the Police is Being a Driver in a Traffic Stop- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

According to Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) findings based on a Police-Public Contact Survey (survey that interviews U.S. residents about their contacts with police during the previous 12 months), showed the most common reason for contact with the police is being a driver in a traffic stop.

Being pulled over for the first time can be a stressful time and because it is most likely your first contact with a police officer it is helpful to know some unwritten rules about interacting with an officer during a traffic stop, to avoid having an already stressful event become any worse:

DO:

  1. turn off your engine and place your hands on the wheel where the officer can see them;
  2. remain in your vehicle;
  3. follow the officer’s lead and wait for instructions before speaking or reaching for anything.

DON’T:

  1. become argumentative;
  2. fumble around looking for your registration and insurance instead keep them all in an envelope in your glove compartment;
  3. tell the officer you plan to contest his or her decision to write you a ticket. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
