Being Pulled Over

There are many nerve-racking scenarios we can face whilst driving – Some of these might include coming up to traffic lights that are not working, or entering a motorway for the first time. But one event keeps drivers on the edge of their seat more than any other – Being pulled over by the police.

If this does happen, it is important to know what to do. Firstly, always remember to stay calm – Starting to panic will never help, and will just make you look suspicious. Remember it is possible that the police car is not even following you – So just pull over to the side of the road and let the officer pass, or pull up and approach you.

Always cooperate with the police officer in question, even if you believe you have been pulled over unfairly. Never get aggressive or argue – This will just make the situation worse for yourself. In most cases, it is just a routine check anyway, so don’t worry!

Safe driving from Britannia!
