Do you have to answer police questions?

You see the lights in your rearview mirror, hear the sirens and your heart races. Having a police officer is a stressful experience whether you’ve done something wrong or not. Knowing how to handle yourself can help make a traffic stop more tolerable while not incriminating yourself.

What are your rights during an Illinois traffic stop?

No driver likes to see red flashing lights in the rearview mirror. But for those who have illegal drugs in the vehicle or are driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they are most likely thinking about what might happen now that police have pulled them over. What are their rights during a traffic stop?

Does innocence supersede your guilt?

You’re probably familiar with your presumption of innocence until you are proven guilty. And if anyone ever accused you of committing a crime, you know a judge or jury requires enough evidence to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt during a trial. That way, they can hold you accountable for your offenses.
