How To Answer 4 Common Trick Questions from a Texas Cop
We've all been there. Whether you got pulled over for allegedly speeding in Houston, TX or for allegedly not coming to a complete stop in Henderson, TX, it sucks. But did you know that there are four trick questions that an officer might ask you?
Jesse Hernandez, who is a lawyer here in Texas, likes to use his TikTok to disperse free legal advice to his followers, especially regarding the proper ways to deal with law enforcement.
Hernandez recently shared a video that reveals four "trick questions" that police officers will regularly use when they pull you over, to get you on record breaking the law. He also shared the best way to answer them to keep you out of trouble.
You might be surprised to learn that all four questions all seem pretty standard. Like if your kids were playing pretend police officers, they'd probably use them. Here they are:
- Do you know how fast you were going?
- Can we search your car?
- Where are you coming from?
- Do you know why I pulled you over?
In his video, Hernandez explains how the way that you answer these questions can change how the interaction will go and could affect whether or not you could get into trouble.
