Yeah...cause I see people all the time with sirens and flashing lights all over their vehicles. Good luck rolling the window down the inch "needed to pass paperwork through." That would probably just get the officer to ask you to step out of the vehicle in order to make sure YOU don't have a weapon on you that you might be trying to hide.

I'd get your daughters out of that driver's ed class ASAP...you sure they're not telling them that we drive on the left side of the road in the United States?

Mine might have once. I was getting a ride home from the hospital where I volunteered with my Golden Retriever doing animal assisted therapy, I got a ride from another volunteer, when she accidentally ran a red light (thought the yellow would be longer and didn't slow down) and we got pulled over.
The officer came up to the car, the driver started apologizing profusely and she gave him her license. The officer looked at both of us, looked a little longer into the back seat where there was a red Golden Retriever and Pomeranian sitting quietly both wearing seatbelt harnesses, and let us go on our way.

Depending on your state laws, if you dont pull over and you call 911 you COULD get a ticket for driving and operating a cell phone. if the cop wants to take it there. but everything else is SPOT on!! hazards until you find not only a safe spot for you to pull over but for the cop to get out of their vehicle (they hate when you pull onto a half shoulder) interiour lights on hands in view and be honest. keeping the other windows up is a great idea so the dog can not get to the officer. and as stated above voicing that the dog IS restrained will be helpful.

it gets put in the paper here every couple years. there are often reports of someone having a small flashing light in their car and pulling people over. The sheriff announces that, if you have doubts, to call 911 and drive to a well-lit public location. And yes, put on your hazards to let the (hopefully real!) officer know that you have seen him.

This is very true, especially for women in secluded areas. A woman was just attacked in a rural area not that long ago by a man pretending to be a police officer. It was all over the news that this is exactly what a person should do.

In the state of Texas, we are instructed to do the same thing. The object is to SAFELY pull over. If you are being pulled over and are suspect to who is pulling you over, you are to call 911. However, you MUST follow the instructions that are dictated to you by the 911 operator.

No different than if you are at home and think you hear someone creeping around. You call 911.

I was also told years and years ago in driver's training that when in doubt call 911 to find out if it is a legit stop. We weren't told to do that for every stop, but if you were unsure if it was really a cop you shouldn't just pull over and hope you don't get murdered.

I have one of these stickers on my rear windshield. (Malinois, not GSD)

I hope it stops the LEOs from pulling me over. If they do, then they know I'm a dog person. Of course, the 2 huge crates in the back of my minivan are also a clue.
