Webinar and Traffic Stop Practice Session
EVERYONE feels anxiety when they see that police car light up behind them. You begin to wonder, “Am I in trouble?” “What did I do wrong?” It can make slowing down your brain difficult in that moment and think about what you need to do. So it’s time to start thinking about what you should do BEFORE you get pulled over. The goal is to have a safe interaction during a traffic stop.
Attend the 1-hour webinar and then practice being pulled over with Baltimore County Police.* This program is offered to licensed drivers or drivers with a learner’s permit with a developmental disability.
*You can register for the webinar only, but you MUST participate in the webinar to attend the practice session. You must attend BOTH to receive a $25 gas gift card.
Participants will receive:
• A printed copy of “PFA Tips: What to Do During a Traffic Stop”
• An envelope which lists the steps to follow on one side, and tips about autism for the officer on the other side. The envelope can be used to hold the person’s registration card, insurance card, and a copy of the PFA Tips article.
• A laminated card (with clips) to attach to the driver’s visor with the top five instructions of what the driver needs to remember to do during the traffic stop
• An Autism disclosure card
