  4. 4. Often, they keep each other informed of highway patrol positions via their CB radios. Follow truckers. When driving in a group of cars, stay in the middle where you can blend in.

  5. 5. Wave at the police cruiser. He will either think that you know each other or will think you're acknowledging that you were speeding, and are letting him know you're slowing down. Sign the ticket. Signing the ticket is not an admission of guilt. It means you received the ticket and will appear in court or pay the ticket. Refusing to sign is a legal offense in many states, and you can be fined and/or arrested. http://www.rd.com/slideshows/6-tricks-to-avoiding-speeding-tickets/#slideshow=slide2 Don’t be combative, but don’t admit guilt, either.

  8. 8. Traffic violations between February 2009 and February 2010, show no significant difference between the frequency of red cars being pulled over and cars of other colors. http://www.forbes.com/2010/10/13/cars-that-get-ticketed-most-police-speeding-lifestyle-vehicles-violations.html Red cars get pulled over more than other cars.
