If Aren’t Driving Illegally, Don’t Be Nervous…

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Perhaps it’s inevitable when we’re driving to suddenly get a little nervous when we spot a police cruiser or state trooper, whether it’s parked in an inconspicuous location trying to catch violators or simply driving alongside the car in traffic. It seems like for most of us, the immediate reaction is to sit up straight, put both hands on the wheel and probably even slow down as we try to bring our heart rates to the normal level. But the one thing we all have to remember when we spot an officer on the road is that if you’re doing nothing wrong, there’s nothing to be nervous about.

This is, of course, always easier said than done. It’s a natural reaction to have but that doesn’t make it any less nerve racking. No one wants to get a speeding ticket or a traffic violation even if we know that completing a defensive driving course can result in a ticket dismissal.

The one thing you definitely do not want to do when you see a police or state trooper vehicle is slam on the brakes. Even if you happen to be speeding (which is something you should avoid), slamming on the brakes is never a good idea. First, those brake lights serve as a excellent indicator to that officer that you were driving faster than you should have been but any time you abruptly brake, you’re risking you’re forcing other drivers to react just as quickly to your sudden movement and that can lead to dangerous accidents.
