Should an officer pull you over, the very first thing you should do is think about the attitude and appearance you are presenting to the officer. Being angry or frustrated will help the situation very little. Getting the officer on your side right away is one way of avoiding a ticket.

Politely offer the officer all of the necessary information and paperwork. Wait until he/she finishes their job before you begin to try to plead your case. Most officers won’t even listen to you until they get the information they need anyway.

Avoiding a speeding ticket can really be quite easy if you humanize the situation for the officer. Don’t beg, plead, cry, or get angry. Simply let him know that you’re sorry. If you really committed the violation, admit it. Let him know what was going through your mind when it occurred, and you have a much better shot at getting out of that ticket before it is ever written.
