If You Feel Unsafe Pulling Over

JT got a question about pulling over for an undercover/unmarked police car, and he gave some advice on what to do if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe when you see blue lights in the rear-view mirror.

Step 1: Once you see the Blue Lights, if you can’t/won’t pull over immediately, turn on your hazard lights and obey all traffic laws(especially the speed limit).

Step 2: If you have any question regarding whether or not the vehicle behind is a legitimate police cruiser, simply dial 911 and state your name and situation. If the car behind you is NOT a police cruiser, the police have now been notified and will give you instructions. If the vehicle behind you IS a police cruiser, the 911 dispatcher will be able to help you find a safe place to pull over and communicate with the officer.

Step 3: Pull your vehicle over in a well lit and preferably public area with people around. This will make the entire experience safer for you and the officer pulling you over.
