if you believe this....
Chris Voss, former lead kidnapping negotiator for the FBI and author of "Never Split the Difference," knows how to get what he wants. In this episode of "Everyday Hostages," Voss breaks down exactly how to get out of a speeding ticket when an officer pulls you over.
I am sure that more than one or two traffic cops will view this video and laugh uncontrollably.
I'm pretty sure that if you respond to the question "Do you know why I stopped you?" by stating "I'm an a**hole", the police officer will probably agree with you and explain the reason for stopping you while he or she is writing up the ticket.
And when a police officer asks for your license and registration, I recommend complying with the request rather than attempting to divert the officer's procedures.
I tried many times and many ways and negotiation does not work. So I just obey the traffic laws!
I find that a simple "Yes, Sir. No, Sir. I'm sorry, Sir", goes a very long ways towards softening the situation up. Most of the time, unless you blew by him and blew his hat off, the officer hasn't made his mind up on the ticket, and your attitude will determine whether you get ticketed or not.
Sometimes, the fact that you are breathing will get you ticket, but there is nothing you can do In these situations, except to bite your tongue, smile, and fight the battle another day.
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
Well my wife ran off with a policeman and when I saw your flashing lights I didn't stop, because for a second, I thought you might be that policeman and you were trying to bring her back to me.
If it were only that simple
...I always had my mind made up before I opened the door to the cruiser. However, there were times when I was not going to cite someone and they changed my mind by their attitude. That was what I called writing their own ticket. There have been a few circumstances, (and I mean a few), where I was going to write a citation but did not do so after talking with the driver. It pays to be nice, treat the officer with respect, and sometimes just admit that you were doing wrong. That can go a long way with some officers.
Being properly dressed with a short skirt and low cut top has worked 100% of the time with male cops. No tickets yet.
Don't speed in the first place.
