I wanted to write this as just a guide for when civi's get pulled over by Police so that there is more fun RP when dealing with Police. I think the first thing everyone should remember is that Police aren't always going to fine you for little things and that you should RP it with fun in mind.
There have been a number of occasions where the first thing people do is take off and run. This is all ok but if you've just run a red light or been pulled over for speeding then there are many other avenues to take before running. Make up a scenario that your girlfriend kicked you out of the house or your pet was hit by a car or something that keeps the conversation going. Take the opportunity to develop your online character. This always goes well when you meet the same Police officer in other pullovers.
A great example of a fun roleplay happened the other day. There was a male pulled over for speeding and he suggested that instead of a fine that he would like to go one on one with an officer. Now, yes, this is not the best scenario and it shouldn't be used BUT the three officers who were involved played it out. It was very funny to play along and it ended up having all four of us enjoying the experience with each other. The suspect was awesome because he kept in character no matter what happened. He played it out properly.
There are too many times when people just fly around the streets without RPing. In real life you wouldn't have ALL citizens just running red lights, speeding and running people over. That's just not realistic. So think about how you can better play out scenarios for the benefit of all people involved. Remember, RP is what makes this server so much fun. So start doing that. It can get boring when people COPBAIT. That's not what we're trying to do as police. It's not about the chases, it's about the RP opportunities. So next time you are pulled over, try something different without running. See if you can get out of the fine with charisma and not violence. Give it a try, who knows it might just work.
