I made a mistake. I did the wrong thing at the wrong time. I am not angry at the cop for doing his job. This is how I reacted to being pulled over for speeding. First time being stopped in over 5 years. I only edited out personal information about myself and the other driver. Please respect local laws and be safe brahs. (Using Tags to get those trying to escape cops. Please do not do that. Take responsibility.)
➡️ Don’t Panic and Be Patient
Once you’re safely on the side of the road, we recommend turning the motorcycle off with the key. You’re probably not going anywhere for a few minutes, so don’t waste the gas idling.
Turning the motorcycle off also signals to the officer that you’re calm and patiently waiting for them to approach. Make sure you keep your hands in plain sight, like setting them on the tank or leaving them resting on the handlebars.
Taking your helmet off can show good faith to the officer, but it could also be used as a weapon too. Taking it off is more personal choice unless directed by the officer to remove it. You may just want to flip up your visor or take your riding eye protection off so the officer can clearly see your eyes.
Stay seated on your motorcycle, and if you choose to, put the stand down. Again it shows you’re waiting for the officer to approach and not looking to flee or cause a problem. It also won’t require you to hold the motorcycle up for a few minutes. Turn on your hazard lights if your motorcycle is equipped with the function.
➡️ Be Prepared
In most cases, the officer is going to pull in behind you, park their patrol vehicle, and walk up to you from behind. When they reach you, most likely they are going to ask for your identification, motorcycle registration, and proof of insurance. Most riders will carry it in a tank bag, on the inside pocket of their jacket, or perhaps in a saddle bag. After it’s requested, and before you move to retrieve it, let the officer know where it is. “Sure officer, let me get those for you out of my ______.” It won’t be a surprise when you reach inside your jacket or inside a tank bag, nor will it cause a suspicious scene.
➡️ Don’t Be a Know-It-All
When you’re talking to the officer, they may ask if you know why they stopped you. If it was a surprise in the beginning, most likely the honest answer is that you don’t. This isn’t the point to start playing 20 questions and giving them hypothetical answers. Even if you have an idea, it’s best to keep it to yourself. Just simply tell them you’re not sure. If you do know 100%, and you knew you were doing something wrong, don’t point it out and admit it.
