20Myth: Cops Will Tear Up The Ticket If You Follow Their Instructions
When a cop pulls drivers over, they might ask them to perform a number of actions. The first and most common thing they tend to ask for is the driver’s license and registration. From there, they may ask any series of questions. It’s important for drivers to comply with their
requests, but they can’t think that by doing whatever they ask, they’ll get out of their ticket.
The site Flex Your Rights warns against doing whatever cops ask, even if they promise to tear up the ticket. Drivers might be better off fighting the ticket in court than playing along with the cops.
