We have compiled a list of the most common ways people are pulled over by the cops. If you avoid doing these few things you will be less likely to be pulled over and get a ticket from the cops! Everyone hates having to pay those unwanted tickets.
The first of course is speeding! In a survey administered by Edmunds, every cop that was surveyed listed stopping speeding drivers as a main priority. If you feel the need for speed be prepared to pay the price. Each year in the United States 34 million speeding tickets are handed out!
Distracted driving is another reason for people getting pulled over. These tickets include illegal texting and driving! According to the Highway Traffic Safety Administration an amazing 40 percent of teens in the U.S. admit to having been in the car while a driver used a cell phone in an endangering way. Teens are attached to their cell phones, ever since smart phones such as iPhones first started making an appearance.
Another main offense is equipment violations. These are easy bait for a cop to pull you over and give you a ticket. According to police officers the most prominent violation is illegal window tints! Following the window tint is burnt out lights, broken windshields, and expired license plate tags!
Tailgating and improper lane changes are ranked equally important when trying to avoid getting pulled over by the cops. Both of these are considered reckless and the cops monitor these things closely. Always use your blinker when changing lanes or turning. This is something the police officers will notice if you don’t use them.
Here are some other attention-getting moves that the police officers pay attention too. Cruising in the left lane of a multilane highway instead of using it only to pass slower traffic on the right. Driving more slowly than the normal traffic flow also creates attention. Peeling out or screeching your tires from a stoplight or stop sign or just squealing tires in general draws attention to you.
It is important to be cautious while driving! Remember the safer you drive the less likely you are to get pulled over by the police!
