Any good schtick you GUYS pull besides doing the gay? I normally tell them I'm in a rush b/c I'm going to ##### my pants. I'm 1 for 2 on that.

I got out of one once by telling the cop that I had just come from taking a friend to get her car, since she had to leave it 20 minutes from home because she didn't want to drive home drunk the night before. And it was the 100% truth.

Not bad.

 
I had gotten 8 warnings in a row at one time, but the last two times I have gotten tickets. I have never told any stories. Just pull over in a safe spot for the officer, have the window rolled down, usually have both hands on the steering wheel, and is just courteous to his questions.

 
The last two times (in the last 5 years) I have simply told the truth. Clean driving record so no worries when they went to their car. Plus, when the lights went on, I knew they were for me, and I pulled over right away. No trying to hide or be sneaky. Maybe that helped me out, don't know.

 
Last time I was pulled over was in a 45. I passed the cop going 65. On my way to court. Cop asks if I knew it was 45 in that area. I responded yes I did, I just didn't see him.

Told him I'm on my way to court and he couldn't detain me any longer. (In IL a cop can still ticket an attorney later or mail it, but has to let you go if you are going to/from court)

He let me go with a warning.

This works even better if you can hurry up and crap your pants before the cops get to your car. Much more believable.

I know if I were a cop I would rather not have to deal with a guy that has a load of $### in his pants.

on the way to work....said my employee just called me and she is not coming to work....she usually goes in before I do and is responsible for opening the doors....said I was now kind of in a hurry because I was the one that needed to open up....this worked

I ref a lot of sports....usually have my stuff hanging up in the back.....have said I was at work and just got called in to fill in for a guy in town X and the game starts soon...this has worked a couple of times.....(by a cheap ref shirt, leave it in your car).....little bit of a bond between refs and cops I think......

 
Take your seat belt off and be extremely respectful. I think I'm up to 4 pull overs in a row with just a seat belt ticket.

I have a bunch of cop buddies and they all say that this one is used by everyone and doesn't work as much as people think.

I usually just tell the cop the truth and say I'm sorry. I point out my above average good driving record and ask if there is anyway they could give me a warning, I'd really appreciate it. But I'll understand if they can't. I make sure to use a lot of "sirs/ma'ams", "please" and "thank yous." Lifetime, I'm batting about .500.

This. I've been pulled over five times locally and never gotten a ticket. Don't mess around, get over ASAP and get your license and registration out. I think I was going about 64 officer (tell the truth). One guy asked me how long it'd been since I'd had a moving violation and when I told him never he didn't believe me. But after checking he came back with a warning and said he didn't want to bust up the record for something minor.

But if you get pulled over out of state, forget it. 0-2 there.

 
Only time I got pulled over in the States was on some country road in Iowa. Played the foreigner card, and stated that I needed to get my sister to the airport (true). Got a warning, kept to the speed limit to the county limit, then put it back to 75 and onto Chicago.

Agreed.

I will add that when I pull over, I put both of my hands on top of the steering wheel and don't reach for anything. Once they walk up and they ask for my license, I'll tell them I'm going to reach for my wallet and insurance card. My friends say the last thing they want to see when walking up to a car is someone fidgeting in their glovebox or reaching for something that they can't see.

 
The Speeder's Guide to Avoiding Tickets

Written by a retired NY State Trooper. Good read if you drive a lot. Some are pretty advanced stuff, like dress like a priest/nun while driving long distances. If you're on a highway with traffic, tell the officer "I'm glad to see you! I was following a guy who's obviously drunk so I can his plate number!".

Women, start crying and beg the officer to let you off because if you get one more ticket your husband's going to beat you.

Also, don't readily admit guilt and always act surprised he thought you were speeding because sometimes they aren't 100% sure what car was over the limit. Don't have your credentials ready when he approaches your car. You want him to have time to consider letting you off.

Always have a water bottle in the car. Say you really had to go and spill some of the water on your pants. Look and say you are really embarrassed.

One a chick friend of mine used. "I was hoping you pulled me over to ask me to your Ball." Officer: "Police don't have balls." She smiles and gets a "Have a nice day." Never tried that one, but don't think it would work for me."

I believe this belongs in the joke from the 80's thread.

 
Some poker player claimed he got stopped twice in the desert outside of Vegas going 150+ in a sports car, by a cop hiding behind a billboard, but got off both times because he immediately pulled over and didn't make the cop chase him.

 
It might seem like a good idea to give them a present but it's not.

I found out the hard way the time I pulled out a gun shaped donut.

I'm 1/1 out of state (Ohio). I was doing like 85 in a 65 and he let me off with a warning.

Ask him if he likes Kanye West. If he doesn't, he's a racist and you'll never get out of that ticket.

 
Just depends on the cop. The last 2 times I just told the truth. I was 2 exits from home and got pulled over. Told the cop I'd been on a business trip for a week and was just excited to see my kids. He let me off. The last time I got a call from my daughter at college screaming in pain after slicing her cornea. I drove like 90 at 5:30am and got pulled over. Told the guy I'm meeting my daughter in the ED, he didn't give a ####. It's rare they let you off these days. Quotas/revenue, etc. (don't even tell me otherwise). So most of the time you're going to get a ticket anyway.

I usually just do the gay ?

 
The best advice I can give any of you is be honest. Like most of the previous posters said, make sure your not reaching for anything in your car after you've been pulled over. Keep your hands where the officer can see them. Better yet, turn on the dome light and make sure you pull over where the officer is not in danger. Also make sure you are respectful but not overly respectful to the point where it sounds like your being sarcastic. Quotas are a bunch of BS. They don't exist

You are so naive. One example of hundreds. They don't call them quotas per se. "Commitments". "Targets"The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is using a formula to evaluate troopers based in part on the number of tickets they write and number of arrests made, records show.

Oklahoma Highway Patrolman Mike Moler talks with a motorist Jan. 25 on I-240 in Oklahoma City. Photo By Steve Gooch, The Oklahoman

One policy sets goals for northeastern Oklahoma's Troop L of about four tickets for every 10 traffic stops and 30 arrests per year for alcohol offenses. Some troopers say the new policy takes away their discretion to issue a warning rather than a ticket and are unhappy about the policies.

I think it's detrimental to the way that the public sees me, said one trooper.

The Tulsa World agreed not to publish the trooper's name, as well as the names of several other sources interviewed for this story. Troopers said they were concerned they could jeopardize their jobs if they spoke out publicly about the new policies.

Capt. George Brown, a spokesman for the patrol, said the policies are goals for 2013 that will be incorporated into troopers' performance monitoring programs as part of a quarterly review process. The goals based on troop average data in different areas of the state promote and ensure public safety, he said.

Holy crap. I've always gotten out of a ticket since becoming an atty (I either knew the cop or legitimately had court), but don't have a law to fall back on. sweet.

This is very true. Also put your keys on the dash. And, as mentioned, pull over to a safe place.

As a defense lawyer, my general advice is to never admit guilt. That said, there are probably cops who reward honesty. So it's a fine line. East tip is to simply not be a doosh.

Once his lights are on, how could you hide or be sneaky if you wanted to?

There were a couple of cars going the same way as myself. So, the lights "could have" been for someone else. But, the gesture, I feel, tells the officer, "hey, I know you're coming for me, so let's make this easy." Probably is less stressful for the cop to when they realize I'm not trying to hide or be sneaky.

 
1. Be White

2. Pull over immediately

3. If it's at night and weather permits, open all your windows and turn on your dome light.

4. Turn your radio off. Turn your car off. Put your keys on your dashboard.

5. Hands at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel as cop approaches, and don't dig around in your car before s/he gets there.

6. Be very cordial.

7. "sir/maam" with every answer you give.

8. Announce every move you're going to make ("I need to reach to my glove box to get my insurance card", etc).

I agree with all of those, except putting the keys on the dashboard just seems a bit extreme, and approaches the point of looking like you're trying too hard - maybe making the cop start wondering what you're trying to hide.

Das, I was about to say the same thing. No keys on dashboard. That's too much. Play it cool fellas especially if you're pushing weight.
