Getting pulled over by the police is not fun. But it happens to most of us at some point in our lives. When it happens to you, you'll have two options: pay a steep fine or try to fight it in court.
But why go through the cost and hassle of either option? By following road laws more carefully, you can avoid getting a ticket – or worse: getting into an accident.
Here are the most common reasons why police might pull you over:
Yep, those Speed Limit signs are there for a reason. When you drive faster than the posted limits, you increase the risk of endangering yourself or others. This is why police give so many speeding tickets – to warn drivers to slow down and prevent them from doing it again.
2) Swerving or reckless driving
Police are constantly on the lookout for unusual behavior while driving, such as unexpected swerving or driving over the lines. This is usually the sign of a distracted or intoxicated driver – an issue that police take very seriously. If you're not driving in a safe manner, expect to be pulled over.
