    Thank you for the Washington State flyer. I will leave another message if/when it becomes necessary to use it, explaining the situation encountered.

      On further examination of Washington State RCW 46.61.020, I believe it is the duty of a driver/person stopped or detained by a police officer to actually hand over his Drivers License, Vehicle Registration and Proof of Insurance, into the police officers hand if requested to do so. My past experiences also cause me to believe police officers in Washington State, know this and do demand it. TO WIT;

      RCW 46.61.020 – Refusal to give information to or cooperate with officer — Penalty.

      (1) It is unlawful…, and it is likewise unlawful for any such person to refuse or neglect to stop when signaled to stop by any police officer or to refuse upon demand of such police officer to produce his or her certificate of license registration of such vehicle, his or her insurance identification card, or his or her vehicle driver’s license or to refuse to permit such officer to take any such license, card, or certificate for the purpose of examination thereof… Any police officer shall on request produce evidence of his or her authorization as such.

      I will therefore, if and when demanded by a police officer in Washington State to hand over my papers; roll down my window just far enough to slip the requested papers through the window slot for the officer’s personal examination thereof. I will not answer any questions, but will continue to remain silent.

        As the flyer says, if the officer clearly states an order it is safer to comply.

        We do not agree that such an order would be legal. The Fourth Amendment is superior to state statutes.

      Shouldn’t you also put line “I am audio and video recording this event”, or something like that?

    No wonder we have all this nonsense going on These days with the law.. I have never heard of not answering questions of a law enforcement official or not being prepared to show proof of license, registration, and insurance.
    To not answer an official is rude and almost an affirmation of illegal goings on. Just answer their questions and treat them the way you would like to be treated, with respect.

      This is actually not correct. The Supreme Court themselves have stated that it is not in the interest of anyone, guilty or innocent, to talk to the police.

      Speaking the police when you are guilty can only uncover your guilt. Speaking to the police while innocent can lead them to probable cause if your statements do not match their known information, witness statements, or if it does match information they are looking for. Statements by innocent people have led to arrest and conviction of innocent people.

        And furthermore, a police officer can lie all day long and it’s held up by the Supreme court. Anything they say is declared hearsay but anything you say can be held against you in court. You may not lie to them. But you can be QUIET. They can say, “Hey, you and your car fit the description of a robbery that just occurred. I’m gonna need to see you papers and search your car for my own safety.” No robbery? No problem. They get away with it legally.
