Pull Over

If you see those dreaded blue lights flash and light up behind you, pull over to the side of the road in as safe of a manner as possible.  Do not fumble with anything in the car. And alert the police officer if there is a gun or other weapons in the vehicle at once.

Be Courteous and Respectful

If you are courteous and respectful and abide by the requests of the officer you will find the experience much easier.  Maybe you are having a bad day; maybe the same can be said of the police officer. Rest assured everyone wins if you are courteous.

Sign Your Ticket

When an officer gives you a ticket, whether it is for speeding or a more serious charge, you are required by law to sign the ticket. You are not admitting guilt, but admitting receipt of the ticket. Failure to sign a ticket can escalate a simple situation very quickly and may lead to your arrest.

Never Resist Arrest

Resisting the arrest of an officer is a crime and you can and will go to jail if you resist arrest. Even if you do not feel that you are guilty of a crime, you cannot resist arrest. You have time to tell your side of the story in court.

If you are arrested, bailbonds Vista comes to the rescue. Call a company like Acme Bail Bonds for help posting a bail bond, which releases you from jail confinement until your court date when the jury or a judge decides your fate.
