A cop can detect a lying person from across the room. One way they do this is to observe physical behavior.
All cops are trained that a lying person will avoid eye contact. Therefore if you avoid eye contact, the officer may perceive you to be lying to him (no matter how truthful you may be).
By maintaining eye contact you are showing the cop that you are telling the truth and have nothing to hide.
Some important points to remember:
It makes the cop's job a lot easier if he can get you to admit whatever it is he pulled you over for. There are a number of ways a cop can get you to do this. One way is with trick questions.
How you answer these questions is very important. Remember that what you say on the side of the road can make its way to the courtroom if you choose to challenge the ticket.
Here are some common guilt admitting questions the officer might ask and how you should respond to them:
As long as you don't give direct answers to these questions you should be all right. Remember, he's asking you these questions with one goal in mind... to get you to admit guilt!
Aside from the fact that you want to avoid this potential ticket, you should also refrain from doing anything that may stand out in the officer's mind later on.
This is important for many reasons, but the most important one has to do with your time in court. If the officer doesn't remember certain aspects of the stop, it may have a damaging effect when he goes to court to give his testimony.
By you remaining 'behind the scenes', the officer will immediately begin to forget major aspects of the stop. He may fail to write any notes about his encounter with you and this will only work to your advantage.
Now that you have a general idea of what to do when you get pulled over I suggest that you implement the preceding pointers during your next traffic stop. Simply by following what you have learned, you greatly decrease your chances of getting a ticket.
