When stopping the car on the road, the traffic police inspector first of all checks that the driver has the necessary documents, but sometimes the guardian of the order also asks the driver a number of questions on duty. What can a traffic policeman ask about?
Where are you from / where are you going?
Most often, border guards or customs officers are interested in the route of travel, but if a traffic police inspector asks such a question, then the answer should be brief – a couple of general phrases. But you should not be frank with a police officer.
The fact is that such a question is asked by a law enforcement officer if he has certain suspicions about the driver. Therefore, if the latter replies that, for example, he is going from a corporate party, then the policeman’s confidence in his righteousness will only get stronger, and he will no longer give the motorist the opportunity to continue driving without passing a medical certificate.
How do you feel?
As if between times, the traffic cop can ask the driver about his health status. This does not mean that the law enforcement officer is worried about the well-being of the motorist. Most likely, he again had doubts about whether the person driving was in a state of alcoholic or drug intoxication.
Again, the answer to the question about well-being should be as brief and restrained as possible, while if the traffic police officer begins to hint at the need to undergo a medical examination, then it is best to immediately go to a meeting. The absence of hesitation on the part of the driver will dispel the doubts of the law enforcement officer, after which he will release him in peace.
Note that there is no reason for the traffic police inspector to insist on passing a medical examination without a reason. In addition, if the driver refuses to be clean, then he will have every reason to write a complaint against the employee.
Do you have a lot of fines?
With such a question, the policeman again probes the waters, so you should answer it briefly and honestly. But it’s not worth playing with the law enforcement officer, because if a motorist provides him with incorrect information, he can break it through the databases and find a discrepancy in the number of fines.
In this situation, the driver will have a bad score with the police, and then the traffic police officer will probably want to check the person behind the wheel more meticulously.
How will we resolve the issue?
If the driver really violated something, then a conscientious police officer will not beat around the bush, and will simply explain to the motorist where he made a mistake and draw up an appropriate protocol on an administrative offense.
But if we are talking about the so-called werewolf in uniform, then he will immediately begin to hint in every possible way to the driver about the opportunity to resolve the issue on the spot, that is, with a bribe. In no case should a motorist succumb to provocations, since the punishment for trying to bribe a law enforcement officer is much more substantial than an ordinary traffic fine.
Fortunately, in recent years, inspectors who earn money on the roads have become noticeably less than 10-15 years ago. The reason for this is the traffic police’s own security service, which promptly and to the fullest extent of the law is trying to suppress bribery in the bud.
