What to Do If You Are Pulled Over

If you've been pulled over for reckless driving in Mineola—or for any other reason—there are some important steps you need to follow. Attorneys strongly advise individuals to pull over as soon as it is safe to do so when you see flashing lights in your rearview mirror. This demonstrates to the police officer that you're cooperative. Lawyers also recommend waiting for the police officer to ask you for your license, registration, and proof of insurance, rather than rummaging around in your glove compartment for these items while the officer approaches your car. This is because the officer may misinterpret these actions to mean that you're trying to hide something.
