We already educate Florida visitors and tourists on our information portal www.florida-informations.com about the important custom and rules when travelling in the United States for years. However, some information needs to be stressed constantly to make sure that it is known and keeps you save.
In many countries it is common to leave your car when you are stopped by the
police or the road troopers. Such a behavior can have bad consequences for you
as the driver. As long as you stay in your car when stopped on the street or
road you are in a save spot. As soon as you leave the car such movements
are interpreted by the law enforcement officer as a threat and they are allowed
to protect themselves with all necessary force.
Therefore, never leave your car unless the officer tells you to do so. Also
do not show any aggressive movements or speech because nearly every officer has
either a dash cam or even a body cam that records every move not only for your
protection but also for the protection of the officer. Disrespectful behavior is recorded and can be use as evidence later.
Stay save when travelling in the United States and Florida. The many officers
on the roads are there for your safety and are often there to assist you. So be
nice to them and respect them.
