Why do the police pull people over?

If you're worried that any incident involving the police could lead to your deportation, you probably think about it a lot when you're behind the wheel. You know just how common traffic stops are, and you don't want something so simple to cause things to spiral out of control.

Fortunately, the police cannot simply pull you over for any reason and search for ways to arrest you. They must have a valid reason for a traffic stop before initiating that stop. Of course, they have a lot of options to choose from. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • You're driving faster than the speed limit
  • You're distracted by your phone while behind the wheel
  • You're tailgating the car ahead of you
  • You changed lanes improperly, such as crossing a solid line or changing lanes without signaling
  • You have windows that are tinted too dark
  • You have a cracked or broken windshield that is bad enough to interfere with your vision.
  • You have a burned-out headlight or taillight.
  • You have license plates that appear to be expired
  • You do not have a license plate at all
  • You hit the gas so hard that your tires squealed on the pavement
  • You broke a common traffic law; examples include running a red light, not fully stopping at a stop sign or not giving a pedestrian the right of way in a crosswalk

If you do get pulled over, it could just be the beginning of a far larger and more serious legal issue. Make sure that you are well aware of all of your rights.
