Whatever the cause, almost every driver knows the sinking feeling of seeing flashing blue lights in their rear-view mirror.
But not every traffic stop has to result in a ticket. Consumer protection attorney and R&T contributor Steve Lehto has a full 30 years of experience dealing with traffic tickets (some of which are his own), speaking with officers, and listening to his own clients. In his latest podcast, Lehto goes through the best ways to avoid getting ticketed.
Some of his advice is relatively well-known, like the fact that you should pull over quickly when you see the lights come on. But a lot of what he has to say isn’t as obvious. Give it a listen, and while we can’t guarantee it’ll work, following his advice will definitely help you out the next time you get pulled over.
