With some concerns lately about tensions between the public and the police around the country, Newswatch 16 This Morning decided to find out more about what your rights are and what the rights of the police are in case you are ever pulled over. Acting Chief Will Bilinski from Dickson City Police Department offered the following tips:
- Pull off to the right side of the road as far as you can or into a parking lot.
- Don't jump out of your vehicle because it puts police on guard. Keep your hands on the steering wheel.
- Although you have the right to remain silent, you do have to comply with identifying yourself (license, registration, insurance).
