I just returned from vacation, where I spent a week in Wisconsin with my 12 year old son. As a little back ground, I also have a 23 year old son who drives safely now, but when he was younger drove too fast, leading to quite a few arguments between us. We were driving through a tourist area when I went through a yellow light that turned red just before I entered the intersection. I was wrong and as luck would have it there was a LEO driving behind me, and he pulled me over. As soon as my son saw I was being pulled over he started laughing and asked if I was getting a ticket. I told him I probably was and he pulled out his cell phone to text my older son, as he thought it was funny after all my safe driving lectures to my older son I was getting a ticket. I gave my license and CC permit to the officer and let him know my gun (I referred to it as "it") was in my right front pocket. He told me to leave it there and after running my license we had a brief conversation during which I was respectful and let him know I was in the wrong, and he let me off with a verbal warning. He could not have been more professional and polite and I appreciated the break. I did what I was supposed to, keeping my hands in plain view, etc., but it occurred to me afterwards that my son had no idea what to do in that scenario. By way of example, had he reached into his pocket for his cell phone while I was talking to the officer there's no way to know how the officer would react, not knowing what he was reaching for. I talked to my son afterwards about the things we should and should not do when pulled over (hopefully not again for a while, or ever), and just wanted to post a reminder to everyone who hasn't had that conversation with family members they drive with that it's a good idea to do so. LEO's have no idea who they're pulling over, and preventing any misunderstandings goes a long way towards keeping everyone safe.
