Legal Tip: What The Police Know and Will Not Tell You

When you're pulled over by the police:
  1. While you MUST give correct identification information, you do NOT have to answer any other questions.
  2. You do NOT have to tell a police why you THINK he stopped you, where you were coming from, or where, or how fast, you were going.
  3. You also do NOT have to agree to let the cops search your car (or anything else).

As usual, every situation is unique.  Contact a Virginia attorney for specific details.
