Streets of Speed - Speeders Warned to Watch What They Say

Just because a driver is pulled over for a traffic violation doesn TMt necessarily mean a citation is on the way. Officer Rodney Guerra with the Alamo Police Department said he would rather issue a warning for most infractions and send motorists on their way. However, tickets continue to mount each day on Valley roadways. The reason? A lack of respect, said Officer Guerra. More times than not, he pointed to drivers who chose to wage verbal war rather than politely answer the questions asked during a traffic stop.

"They're trying to get themselves out of a situation and it's not going to work," Officer Guerra said.

So what shouldn TMt speeders say after being pulled over by a police officer?
