Once, you’ve heard the instructions repeat it back and tell the Officer what and where you plan to reach items in your car. This is not a must, but it is strongly encouraged to be polite, courteous, and cooperative.
3. As much as you may like or dislike the Police, you need to set your personal feelings aside and focus on the immediate situation.
You do have the right to remain silent, but this is often taken out of context by the average person. The rights given to us by our constitution is one that allows us not to be compelled to admit something once we are arrested or in custody.
A traffic stop does not create a custody situation but can result in temporary loss of freedom. So choosing not to admit anything is a slippery slope. If you know you are guilty, then, by all means, don’t say you drank five shots of vodka ten minutes ago but you had to run home because you left the kids at home by themselves.
This is an extreme example but sure admitting this creates many problems that could result in an arrest and possibly, lose guardianship of your kids.
