Tips to Keep from getting Pulled over due to driving
If you speed, you might as well protect yourself. Radar detectors are legal in Ohio. Many DUI stops happen because a person was speeding. Police officers have the ability to run moving radar, meaning they don't have to sit on the side of the road to radar you.
A Stop Bar is that pesky white line that looks like a crosswalk. You have to stop behind it, not on the line, but behind the line.
Call a Cab
A cab is a lot cheaper than a DUI.
You can't wear headphones when you are driving. Use your radio or if your radio is jacked up buy a boombox and put it on your passenger seat.
Use them all the time. When you change lanes. When you leave a parking spot. Make it a habit. Just because you don't see the police, doesn't mean they aren't lurking.
It seems simple enough to use them after dusk; but also remember in most jurisdictions if you are using your windshield wipers your lights must be on.
Check Your License Status
You may think your license is valid, but the BMV can suspend your license for a myriad of reasons and if you moved you may not know your license is suspended. You can check your license status in Ohio, by visiting the BMV"s website.
Stopping for a School Bus
By law a school bus driver has to report the license plate of anyone who doesn't stop for a school bus. So don't be tempted to shoot by a school bus who has the stop sign activated. Don't believe it check it out: ORC4511.751.
