If you want to avoid traffic tickets then first of all obey the law. That ought to keep trouble away but this does not mean that you are immune to being pulled over. The police will always look for a reason to pull you over. They will watch your body language and weigh your responses. This means you simply have to know how to behave in such a scenario and drive off.
If a cop gets behind you, just relax! It doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting pulled over and it doesn’t mean he’s looking for a reason to stop you. Heck, the officer may be heading back to the station so he can finish his shift and go home. Although, on the other hand, maybe you’re right. Maybe he’s on a special traffic enforcement division ready to write as many tickets as possible and he really IS looking for a reason to pull you over. Yeah, you should make an attempt to go the speed limit and follow the law, but don’t freak out about going a few mph over. The more you freak out, the more you’re going to screw up, the more nervous you’ll look, and the more reason the cop will have to pull you over. Chances are, if he already decided to pull you over, he’ll find something anyway. Just drive.
Look Far Ahead
What does looking far ahead have to do with avoiding traffic tickets? Simple. When you look far ahead, you drive in a straighter line. However, it’s natural human reaction to look closer when we are nervous. When we look closer, we tend to veer back and forth in our lane more. Veering back and forth, especially if you are touching the lines, makes it look like you’ve had one too many strawberry daiquiri’s. Even if you haven’t been drinking, who likes to get pulled over? So remember, when you see the fuzz in the mirror, keep looking far ahead and drive straight. The goal here is to not appear drunk.

Now that you have an idea of how to conduct yourself when stopped by the police, it is important to know how to handle the police. Truth is that every member of law enforcement believe that they have the full force of the law because of the uniform. You will therefore have to have good intellect when handling them.
To have a successful, low-risk interaction with the police when you’re pulled over, you really only need to remember three rules:
Always be courteous and polite. A bit of class and respect will take you far in life, and it will make the next steps easier for you.
Resist every request of the police until you’re forced to oblige. Never, ever resist physically, but do resist verbally and respectfully until it becomes clear you’ll be arrested if you don’t comply. Don’t worry. You don’t get in trouble for being arrested. You only get in trouble for being convicted of the crime you’re arrested for. This is explained in more detail further on.
Do not answer questions. No matter what an officer tells you, you are never compelled to speak to the police or answer their questions without a lawyer present. You may think that being helpful and answering questions (even friendly ones) can help your cause. You’re wrong.
