Doc's Bail Bonds

Being pulled over can cause you to instantly begin to panic. Even the calmest person might make a bad decision while an officer is at their window. There are some things you should simply not do when pulled over, and we are going to remind you of them today. If you or a loved one made a mistake during a traffic stop and got arrested in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Doc's Bail Bonds will help you make bail, fast! We offer quick approvals and bond financing to anyone that comes our way, whether they were arrested during a traffic stop or any other scenario.

Don't Unbuckle Your Seat Belt

There is no reason to take off your seat belt during a traffic stop. Doing this can make the police officer think you might be trying to escape the situation. It might also make them think you are reaching for something that they cannot see. Reaching to take off your seat belt is all around a bad idea. If an officer wants you to get out of the car, they will let you know.

Don't Start Arguing

Being argumentative with an officer will just make them act more harshly with you. Stay calm. Don't get angry. In addition to this, officers take notes during your encounter and they will likely write down what happened. If you are asked to appear in court, your bad behavior will be conveyed to a judge who will then think you are a hostile person. You definitely do not want a judge thinking you are hostile, as it could result in a higher bail amount or a denial of bail.

Don't Reach for Anything

Suddenly moving around in your car can make you look very suspicious, and chances are the officer cannot see what you are doing. Even if an officer asks you to hand them something, you should keep reiterating what you are reaching for and get their permission before making a move. Also make sure to tell them where exactly the item you are reaching for is located.

Don't Resist Police

If an officer decides to arrest you, just let it happen. Even if you do not feel you are in the wrong, resisting arrest will just get you in more serious trouble. Your arrest will be handled by the court and there is no avoiding it, so just cooperate. Once you have been arrested your loved ones can contact a bail bondsman to get you released from jail. Doc's Bail Bond services are available 24/7, so do not hesitate to reach out to us for help.
