Having gone thru the 1996 MI CPl exercise...
at the end I asked the two LEO's, one the assistant deputy Sheriff and State patrol. The ADS replied to my question of how to handle a traffic stop, he responded with: "You sound have locked and emptied in your trunk!", i replied with "Why then did I just go thru this exercise of being granted a full CPL?"
He just glared at me. The State patrolman replied that I should, at first opportunity to inform the approaching officer and follow his directions.
This was before the 2000 CPL reform.
