Hey guys, this is what I do every time I get pulled over and I would advise you to do it too......
I record the conversation on my phone, and I place the phone above the steering wheel on the dash so it has no problem recording. Not that I get pulled over a lot, but i've had my dealings with good and bad cops, and you never know which kind youre getting. So do everyone a favor in keeping the bad cops in check by recording!

thank you for info, cannot tell if you are true or not
my main point is this...'officer' in england means 'officer' goes to sandhurst and has the queen's commision, the rest are 'privates' or NCOs = non commisioned officers, and the police in England are 'constables' the like of that I have had trouble with,, my ex-wife calls the police saying I have been violent (no description by her just violent) then me, a professional ...no record ends up banged up in cells for 12 hours and cannot do my job the next day or even call them to tell them why I cannot turn in!!!! A lot of you - not saying you- are mean!!!!! and worse, evil

And then they wonder why they are looked at more like and occupation army than someone there to preserve the peace. I have had several cops tell me more or less the same thing and they were the "good" ones.........but still didnt quite seem to understand they were telling us to basically grovel and take whatever abuse the cop heaped on us. I have meet decent cops...........ran a stoplight that changed right as i got to it once and was pulled over.............ran my name...was a nice guy who rode too and we talked Harley's for 20 mins and he let me off with a warning
But when even the good cops say the best way to react is with complete subservience like medieval serf or something it makes you wonder just what there mindset is.
We are not a nation of serfs or slaves that need to bow and grovel under the eyes of our betters..........we are a nation of freemen with the right to do as we damn well please as long as we arent harming anyone else. We should be free to move about without being harressed just because we fit some profile or because some x schooll bully has had a bad day
