This is a great video and great advice.
I once got pulled over for running a red light (which I did not - it was yellow when I entered.)
The office asked me if I knew why he pulled me over. I said, probably for the light...blah, blah, blah
Fast forward two month to court:
The defendant stated when I asked him why I pulled him over - "Probably because I ran that red light."
Two lessons learned:
1 - Never talk to the police
2 - ALWAYS have a lawyer if you fight a ticket as I got ROLLED by the judge and the officer. They have a little dance that they do 10 times a day every day...and I didn't know the steps.
Not saying they were wrong...just saying I was stupid and with those two errors, I had no chance of survival.
