A retired police officer has revealed how to avoid getting a ticket when pulled over, revealing the secrets that will cause officers to let you off the hook.


53-year-old Jerry Kane, a retired New York Police Department officer,  told ABC News for the special, 20/20: True Confessions, that if you want to avoid getting a ticket, the best thing you can do is put yourself in the officer’s shoes.

What Kane means is as soon as the officer pulls you over, he is facing as many fears as you are about the traffic stop, maybe even more.


“Cops get killed on car stops,” he said, adding that drivers should remember officers will be on high alert.

“The most dangerous thing to the cop when he comes up to the car are the hands of someone, because they could hold a weapon,” Kane told ABC News for 20/20: True Confessions.

Once pulled over, act in a way so the officer knows that you will not shoot him.

“If he can see everybody’s hands, immediately his blood pressure goes down, his pulse gets a bit slower,” Kane said. “If it’s nighttime, turn on the interior lights in your car. If it’s night or day, lower all the windows on your car. … And put your hands up on the steering wheel — high, where the cop can see them.”

The number one rule of how to avoid getting a ticket is making sure the officer stays relaxed.

“If you were gonna get some discretion, you now set up that possibility.”

Be apologetic, but when the officer asks what you did wrong, do not admit anything.

“You can play dumb. You can say, ‘What did I do?’ And if he tells you what you did, you could say, ‘I must have…you know, I just didn’t realize it,’” Kane said.

Crying can get you out of trouble under two circumstances: if you’re a woman, and especially if you’re an attractive woman.


“Since men and women were created, attractive women get more breaks,” Kane said.

You can get away with speeding, as long as it’s within 10 miles per hour of the speed limit.

“If you were my brother or my cousin and asked me, that’s what I would tell you,” he said.

Utilize these steps to avoid hefty fines and points on your license!
