Arrow DO "NOTHING" WHEN YOU SEE A COP!!

So I'm driving to go save a company from computer melt down today, and I come to a line up of cars. I notice a cop stopping and checking everyone's drivers license, front and back plates etc etc.

My license is in my pocket but Im too restricted to get it out so I undo my seat belt to freely get to my wallet. In that time the cop comes up and says "Im checking for people NOT wearing seat belt."

DOHH!!!!!!

Well you can imagine I felt a complete **** about doing that and explaining why I had just undone my belt etc etc.




He bought it in the end!!

Always leave your seat belt connected. It's very good that you didn't get a ticket.

Never do anything until instructed to do so. if they see you moving around in your car they may take it as suspicious activity

When I get stopped I always turn my engine and the radio off, roll down the window before the officer gets over to the car and I always, always have my wallet handy. This and common curtesy has kept me out trouble with the law and even got me out of a minor infraction.

lol...I don't search for my wallet till I get to them lol. Usually those are the nice cops that do those stops. I've been through plenty in my area. But they check for buzzed and drunk people here

I've had that same situation before. Thinking I was making things easier and somehow got called out for not wearing a seatbelt, and I'm a stickler for seatbelts. I also eventually convinced him since it was the only thing I was arguing against (among the many infractions I was recieving...non-moving violations in Virginia are easy to rack-up in a hurry on a modified car!).

I wish we had checkpoints like that here.

They did one in Austin years ago on a Friday night. They had traffic backed up for miles.

Pictures were taken of the sides of the road littered with bags of beer bottles and cans, bags of weed, pipes, baggies of white powdery substances............. Of course, there were numerous vehicles turning around in the median...

I wish we could do something like that here in San Antonio. ....as far as I know, the random stops are no longer good here in TX.

I use the same technique for a cop as I do when the wife walks in angry.
Sit quietly and wait for them to start the conversation.
Admit to nothing until you know what has gotten you in trouble.

Doing this ensures that I usually don't get in trouble for something that the cop or Tammy doesn't know about.

ha ha try this.
Was on a forth of July headed to my brothers to do some shooting in the middle of nowhere. I get stopped for speeding. The rookie in training yells "We got guns!".
I stick my hands up throught the open t-top, yeah had 3 rugers in their cases in the back seat. I sit in the barditch until the run them all. Then they give me the speeding ticket and tell me to put them in the back.
At least i did not get shot!

Yeah...we sometimes get those in the news when there are done in busy areas known for drunk drivers. Backed up for hours! Luckily...the ones I've been in have been 2 min max. They line up like 10 cops along the side...so they check 10 cars at a time.

One thing that we do have in Cali...is that if you try to turn around...motorcycle cops go after ya. No joke!

That's how you know they are up ahead...when you see up to 5-10 motorcycle lines up on each side staring right as you like vultures as you pass up without their radars pointed at ya...you know its too late to turn around!
