There's no feeling worse than being pulled over.
Not only because you know you’re in trouble with the law for something you KNOW you did, but also due to the anxiety you get from wondering what OTHER laws you may have broken.
If you've ever had the misfortune of being pulled over more than once, you may have realized that cops ALWAYS tap your taillight as they approach your car.
It turns out there are several very good reasons for this seemingly odd habit, and they might just surprise you.
Chances are, you might have missed this little detail while getting pulled over yourself.
That’s understandable. You’re probably wracked with nerves. I mean, who isn’t totally freaking out when the lights and sirens are going on behind them?
Well, hardened criminals for one.
But you’re probably (hopefully?) not one of those, so take the fact that you get freaked out by cops as a sign that you’re a decent, law-abiding citizen. Be worried when you’re NOT freaked out by cops.
Anyway, whether you notice it or not, there's a routine that police perform when approaching your car.
Part of the reason is for their own safety, and many believe part of it might just be tradition or an effort to confuse you.
