My late father-in-law was a Sheriff's Deputy for 25 years. He was also an NRA pistol instructor (who taught me how to shoot) and was my hunting buddy for many years.

I understand completely the viewpoint of an LEO stopping me for whatever reason. The more swiftly I can put him at ease the better it will go for me.

That's why window is rolled down and hands are gripping the top of the steering wheel before he approaches the car.
