If you could give one piece of advice to someone pulled over for a traffic stop, what would it be?

"My 2 faves: You have the right to remain silent.  You can say that out loud and that's all. You have the right to refuse to consent to search your car.  If police believe your car contains evidence of a crime, your car can be searched without your consent.  But you don't have to agree."
