NEW YORK - A former officer with the New York Police Department is giving some advice to help you increase your chances of getting out of a traffic ticket, according to a Wednesday report.
Good Morning America reports Jerry Kane, who is retired, said an officer is on high alert during a traffic stop since they can be dangerous.
Kane suggests lowering the windows, turning on the interior lights if it is dark outside, and placing your hands high on the steering wheel during a stop.
Since this can help calm the officer, the officer might be more understanding, according to the article.
Kane also reportedly said to be apologetic, but you don't have to admit anything and you can play dumb.
You should also keep your speed less than 10 miles over the speed limit, according to the article. Read the full report on gma.yahoo.com .
