1. Find a safe place to pull over. Safely (and as quickly as possible) pull over to the right side of the road or into a parking lot area. Keep in mind officer safety also, Officers die everyday from other vehicles hitting them while on a traffic Stop.
2. If possible role your window down. Turn a light on inside the vehicle so you are more easily scene by the officer. Then put your hands on the steering wheel where they are visible to the officer. Do not start moving around the car looking for your license and insurance, or other documents, until told to do so by the officer.
3. Tell the officer where those items are located, such as the glove box or center console. Most importantly, before moving around, if you have a fire arm in the car. Tell them that and where it is located (while keeping your hands on the steering wheel), then follow their directions after that.
4. Stay calm, be respectful, and answer the questions of the officer as best as you can. If the officer is rude or upset, stay respectful and it could help you in the long run. Everyone gets nervous while being pulled over, but chances are the officer is nervous too due to traffic stops being one of the most deadliest incidents for police officers. Speak clearly, and try not to ramble.
5. While the officer is away from your car make sure not to reach around in your car, try to keep your hands on the steering wheel during the traffic stop. When the officer is done he will verbally tell you when you can leave, after that make sure it is safe to enter traffic again, put your blinker on, and continue on your way.
