The third session in the Forney Police Department’s Citizens’ Police Academy took place Mar. 14. This one was all about patrol and traffic stops and it provided information I believe it would be a good idea to pass along to our readers.
The experience a motorist has when being pulled over by the police can be disconcerting: the flashing red and blue lights in your rear view window and mirror, sometimes accompanied by a siren; the nervous wait while the officer walks to the driverside window; the suspense of waiting to find out why you were stopped. I’ll tell you right now—I’ve never been guilty of anything other than a minor traffic violation, but I get nervous during a traffic stop, just the same. Once I got so nervous I couldn’t immediately locate my insurance information! But police are prepared for that; they see it all the time.
