What to Do If I Get Pulled Over?

TRUE OR FALSE: I must answer all of the questions asked of me once I am pulled over by police.

FALSE: Police are entitled to ask you basic “pedigree” information when you are stopped for a traffic violation, and you are required to answer as much. However, beyond that, you do not need to answer where you are going, where you are coming from or whether you’ve had anything to drink. In fact, if you were inclined to answer these questions (and people often do), chances are you will unwittingly provide the police officer with “evidence” that will later be used against you. It is best to remain respectful and SILENT.
