Q: Attorney Tully, what should I do if I am pulled over by the police on the highway? What’s the best way to avoid getting a ticket?

A: If you hear the police siren behind you, pull over to the curb. Put your hands on the steering wheel so the officer can see you are not a threat to her. Wind down your window. A smile would be good at this point. Do not argue with the police officer no matter how unfairly she may be treating you. If you have to get your identification out of your glove compartment, ask first. Good luck.
