It’s difficult to know what to say when interacting with the police – but thankfully a lawyer is on hand to help us.
In particular, lawyer and TikToker Mike Mandell has shared his ‘expert lawyer advice’ in case you are ever pulled over by authorities for speeding.
It’s not exactly hard to go slightly over the speed limit while on the road if you aren’t careful – so it might be best listen to this bit of advice.
Luckily for us, Mandell uses his TikTok account to share all sorts of legal advice with his followers – whether that be rights in terms of landlord disputes, or the risks of using a fake ID.
In 2022, the lawyer provided perhaps some of his more useful advice as he revealed what you should say if you are stopped by cops for speeding.
See what he had to say below:
Lawyers are known for their slick words, but Mandell has bust out some pretty smooth moves sliding into his car to enact a scenario between a driver and an officer, when an officer has pulled them over having caught them speeding to ask: ‘Do you know how fast you were going?’
Mandell then states: ‘Repeat after me. No officer. How fast was I going?’
“Never ever admit to speeding, because anything you say will be used against you,” he explained.
The post has since amassed millions of views, with users flooding to the video to weigh in on the scenario and their views on Mandell’s advice.
One said: ‘Results may vary due to skin tone.’
Another wrote: “But what if they lie and say I went super above the speed limit? What should we do then?”
Meanwhile, a third commented: ‘Or just don’t speed.’
If you’re not in need of a hack stopping you getting a speeding ticket, then not to worry as TikTok has something for everyone.
Oh, and if you now can’t sleep because of the stress a speeding ticket is causing you then fear not, while it may not help you cough up the cash, a bag of frozen peas can help ease your racing mind and allow you to return to your slumber.
