Opal asked, “If you pull someone over where would you like to see their hands? Open on the steering wheel? Open out the window?

Officer Shane says, “To be honest, I get the hands out the window frequently…It’s nice to be able to see the hands quickly. On the streering wheel is fine too.

Officer Shane says, “It can’t be parked in the same location for more than 72 hours.”
