How to deal with cops

Over the years, I have avoided many traffic tickets. My kids were astounded and baffled, over the years, at how frequently I talked my way out of speeding tickets, by using basic psychology. One night, I was pulled over for 90 mph in a 60 mph zone, and got a warning, after 10 minutes of enjoyable conversation with a CHP officer. On another occasion, I was pursued for 12 miles by a CHP officer, who let his dinner get cold to catch me, and I had a delightful and respectful conversation with him, but no ticket. This is applied psychology, and genuine respect, not racialism. I have also befriended many police officers, and I have the highest respect for their professionalism and dedication, while simultaneously allowing for, understanding and respecting their exquisite humanity.

Black or white, a citizen can greatly reduce his grief in a police encounter, by understanding the psychodynamics of the confrontation, and the rules that govern authoritarian interactions. As a supplement to the advice offered by Chris Rock, I present the following suggestions.

The first principle is to get the chip off your shoulder, and respect the officer. After all, he is ultimately in charge, like it or not.

Every police officer is human. He reasonably fears for his life and well-being, and every interaction is a potential threat to him, until he decides otherwise. The astute citizen ensures that the officer feels safe and unthreatened, at his earliest opportunity, so that he can make the right decision, and carry on an equitable conversation. That citizen gets to sleep in his own bed at night, and then soberly consider the possible unfairness of life, in the light of day.


This is a good guideline to deal with Police Officers. They are unfortunately often criticized, but they are always there to serve and protect citizen as fast as they can.

Police Officers have my respects, that's not an easy job and I am sure it is very stressful.

I had a childhood friend who was Gendarme in my country (France) and had many interesting conversations with him about his job. Here in Nevada I had a few occasions to deal with Highway Patrol Officer or Police officer and I was impressed by their professionalism.

I cannot say that I am happy when I take a speeding ticket, but they are doing their job.
