2. Admit That You Were Speeding

Complex Says: We guarantee that no cop is expecting a person to calmly, apologetically, and respectfully say, “yes, officer, I do know that I was going 81 in a 70.” You have the element of surprise here. Cops spend a lot of time getting sneered at and despised, especially traffic cops, so this will make the officer feel respected, rather than hated. If you were a cop, you'd probably rather give a ticket to the guy who just called you a “pig” under his breath than the guy who calmly admitted that he was going 11mph over the speed limit just like everyone else and didn't try to bullshit you.
