What to do in a Traffic Stop

As criminal defense lawyers, we are often tasked with knowing our client’s constitutional and statutory rights when it comes to police interactions. But what about practical advice for our client to have a safe and anxious free interaction with an officer who initiates a traffic stop? In this episode, Jake offers simple steps for any driver to follow during a traffic stop and talks about why the defense bar bears the responsibility for promoting safe police-civilian interactions through education. NOTE: This video DOES NOT focus on a driver’s constitutional rights during a traffic stop. The tips given in this video are meant to promote safety and mutual respect in police-civilian interactions during a routine traffic stop.
