    Fake Cop Pulls You Over, What To Do?

    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    The report didn't lend much context to the story.

    If someone in an un-marked car is trying to pull you over call 911 and work with the operator to figure out if it is legit , also drive slow with flashers on .

    i am of the mindset that if it's at night, out in the middle of nowhere freeway # whatever, i will do the speed limit with flashers on until i get to a well lit and populated place. unmarked or not.

    daytime? depends. daytime and unmarked? what welder516 said.

    i remember seeing a 'COPS' episode where the police had a car stopped, a buick legacy or something, that had small lights, a siren with different settings, and an ak-47 in the back with little gold stars stuck it to it instead of notches. scary....

    Nothing says you can't ask anyone for credentials at gunpoint. Be the first out of the vehicle, assume the worst.

    ...and if it's a real LEO pulling you over you had best have all your affairs in order.

    I had an uncle who was pulled over by one of those. He described what had happened, and died in the hospital.

    That's one reason I won't pull over at night unless I'm in a well-lit area, and I won't stop unless it's a recognizeable police car.

    That's also why I'm not happy about all the "LEO" badges and guns being being bestowed on things like the Lesser Podunk Library Fine Enforcement Unit. They can LEO their asses off, but how am I to know they're official "Law Enforcement Officers" of some type, or just some whacktard with his own uniform and a gun?

    That is the single most incorrect, illegal and dangerous bit of advice I have ever seen posted on this forum.

    This is about the best you can do.
    1. You're proceeding slowly
    2. Talking to 911 (which will confirm or deny)
    3. If it is police 911 should let LEO know you are pulling over so they hopefully won't ticket you for evading.

    Years ago a state trooper tried to stop my wife and son on a back road at night. I had told her to go to a lighted place before she stops. The closest thing was a friends house about a mile away. When he got out of the car he goes to raising hell about her not stopping and threatens to take her to jail. My son was 14 at the time, he pips up and tells the cop that he might want to change the tone of his voice when he addresses my wife. The cop asks him why would I want to do that. My son says because if you don't my daddy will one day catch you out of that uniform and you won't like the tone of his voice. He shut up went to his car a wrote her a warning for rolling through a stop sign.

    Keep driving while calling 911 for a real LEO.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I wouldn't suggest you try that any time soon.
