People outfitting their cars with lights and pretending to be undercover cops is a growing problem. Typically people who are doing this do not have good intentions, and you want to avoid being pulled over and possibly put in danger by these people at all costs. This article will guide you on how to protect yourself from fake undercover cop cars.
Things You Will Need
People impersonating police officers by driving fake undercover cop cars is a growing problem, you need to remain alert when someone in an unmarked police car is attempting to pull you over.
The first step to protecting yourself from fake undercover cop cars is to look for blue lights when the cop car pulls you over. All undercover cop cars will have blue flashing lights on them, it is mandatory. If the car pulling you over does not have blue lights flashing anywhere then it is not a cop, it is someone impersonating a police officer.
The second step is to call 911 if an undercover cop car is trying to pull you over and you suspect it may not be a real police officer. When you call 911 they will be able to tell you if the car pulling you over is a police officer or someone attempting to impersonate a police officer.
The third step to protecting yourself from fake undercover cop cars is to put on your hazard lights and drive slowly(so it does not look like your trying to get away) into a well lit public area with people around if you are unsure of the cop car trying to pull you over. A person attempting to impersonate a police officer does not want to be in a public place where there are witnesses to their actions, as impersonating a police officer is a serious crime.
