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

“Keep your hands visible, don’t reach for anything, don’t appear to be making note of the officer’s name. Tell any occupants of your car not to say one word. I would advise to stop any movement, fidgeting at all seems to heighten the officer’s curiosity/ anxiety.”
