What To Do When You Are Pulled Over

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Driver Safety For You & Your Family

It is very important that we all know what to do when pulled over by law enforcement. A routine stop is to say the least, nerve testing. Flashing lights and a small siren can do a lot to a driver’s emotions.

The online driver safety  course, DefensiveDriving.com was created to instruct all drivers on safe and bad driving behaviors. Hence, here are some important tips that everyone should know when they are pulled over by law enforcement.

  1. Stay Calm. Being calm is key when stopped by law enforcement. A calm nature allows you to communicate and respond appropriately to the law officials.
  2. Keep still. Rapid and erratic movement may create an undesirable reaction from law officials. Keep your hands on the steering wheel or whatever allows the most inactivity.
  3. Listen intently to the officers instructions and requests. Do not react emotionally.

More importantly, don’t drive when you’re upset.  If you are angry or emotionally upset, you won’t be able to concentrate as well on driving.  So, wait until you calm down before you proceed.

Taking the DefensiveDriving.com, driver safety course will prevent points on your driver record as well as reduce insurance rates. DefensiveDriving.com is Texas’ most trusted course provider and the most comprehensive course on driver safety in the market today.
