If you're one of my friends, you'll want to read this article on nolo.com:
Things to remember when you're stopped by a Police Officer
Totally, bar none, take notes on this one: MAKE THE OFFICER FEEL SAFE!!
I have been let off on several trivial tickets for this behavior. Especially in high risk areas like big cities or dark areas, cops love it. I mean, like I've been thanked before for doing things to help them know it's safe to approach me.
Many thanks to Jack for the link. I've learned alot of this the hard way, and it's good to have it documented somewhere so others don't have to.

Thank you very much for this post, I found it very informative.
No problem. Glad I could spread the word. That's a very kickass icon, by the way.
Oh, my bad, I just noticed I hadn't linked you back as a friend. I guess I should pay a little more attention to the arrow direction in the client :->
That mistake has been rectified now.
I'm not sure if you remember me or not, but we use to share a few conversations in the technical community… (before it went away)…
I was (and still am having) Exchange Server 5.5 issues.
Yea, I remember ya :->
What kind of exchange problems you having?
My Friends-only-know-this approch works better… and will get you out of almost any crime!
huh? what's that?
i don't discuss my technique with police to people i dont know 😛 specially on live journal :O
The one where you remove your pants as they walk up to the car, assuming they can't issue a ticket to you sans trousers?
no, talk to me off of live journal ;]
