Proper Action When Stopped by Law Enforcement

For the safety of vehicle operators and law enforcement officers, drivers stopped by police should adhere to the following suggestions: 

Slow down and safely pull over on to the right-hand shoulder of the roadway.                        If there is no shoulder or it is too narrow to pull over, the driver should find the next safest location and pull over.• Do not slam on the brakes or stop in the lane of traffic. Drivers should not stop their vehicle on bridges, curves, next to guardrails, concrete walls, medians or any place where it would be difficult for other vehicles to pass. A vehicle should not be stopped too close to the solid white line, as it may get struck by oncoming traffic.
