What if I am stopped on the road by a Police Officer?
The Police Officer will usually ask you for your driver’s license, registration information, and proof of insurance.  The Police Officer is supposed to inform you as to why you were stopped, and allow you to offer an explanation for any question you are asked.  In some cases, the Police Officer may even ask for your permission to search your vehicle for illegal drugs or weapons. Under no circumstances should you allow a Police Officer to search your vehicle without a warrant.  If you are eventually arrested as a result of your traffic stop, do not make any statements to the arresting Officer.  Those statements, if given, could later be used against you in Court.
