How to Act When You're Pulled Over

Attorneys often represent clients who made a few mistakes while getting pulled over and are subsequently facing additional charges. Whether or not you've been doing something illegal when you're pulled over, such as engaging in reckless driving, your attorney is likely to recommend that you remain respectful and cooperative when interacting with the police officers.

When you watch this video, you'll learn the importance of keeping your hands visible to the officer at all times. As the officer approaches your car, keep your hands on the steering wheel. If you immediately start looking for your driver's license, the officer will assume that you're either hiding contraband or reaching for a weapon. Subsequently, the officer may draw his or her gun on you. By staying calm and following the officer's directions, there may be less of a chance that you'll require the services of a Mineola criminal lawyer.
