They would always ask if they were free to leave after I explain the ticket to them so now I just say, "you're free to go/leave."

I say "have a nice day" if they got a warning. I say "drive safe" if they got a ticket. I may start saying "be careful pulling back into traffic" just to mix things up.

"You're free to go" or "Drive safe"


and it's 'too', not 'to'

Hope you have a better day/night.
I usually use drive safely. You are free to leave. Above reserved for jackasses that sarcastically tell me to have a good night/day.

From a motorists perspective "Please drive safely" is even more condescending than "Have a nice day"

The motorist is going to feel royally screwed if you ticket them. And if you cut them a break, they are going to be happy no matter what you say.

In Wichita last month, I got nailed in one of their speed traps on Kellog. The officer signed off with "You gotta slow down here, we are out here all the time"
I thought that was pretty good. Makes it sound like he regrets having to take your money, and is offering some good advice.

When I was a State Trooper

"Please Drive Carefully/Safely"

God help you if the reviewed your tape and you had said something "smart"
Link Posted: 10/19/2009 9:56:06 PM EST
"Buckle up and drive safe."

"get to where u are going safely, ok."

Or "Slow it down just a little, and drive safely"

Most of the time I almost always reduce the speed to lower the ticket and I tell them that. I also will usually only write one violation and give warnings for everything else....most people thank me and tell me to be safe. If they are nice and tell me to have a good night, I reciprocate with the same response.

Oh hell I forget. I haven't made a traffic stop in at least two years.

I say something like... "Sorry we had to meet under these circumstances..."

I personally NEVER say anything like "have a nice day" after I cite someone.
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 5:35:28 AM EST
"have a nice day" will generate complaints and is the "F you" of traffic stop statements.

i end with "take care. be safe."

I am not a cop, but if I was ... this is how I would end the stop.

Sounds like someone just got a performance review.
They always need to find something to suggest to 'improve' your performance.

"Have a nice day", after I just got a ticket would not make me happy, "Please drive safely" isn't too awful, "Please watch your speed" wouldn't be too bad either.

If the stop ended in a citation, I usually said, "Drive careful." If it it resulted in a warning, "Have a nice day."
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 8:51:04 AM EST
It's either, "Drive careful." or "Buckle up and be safe."
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 8:54:50 AM EST
Too...
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 9:03:31 AM EST
I usually end a traffic stop with, "Thanks for wasting everyone's time and my money. Go write some more tickets."

Link Posted: 10/20/2009 10:14:44 AM EST
Lately most of my stops have ended with me saying......"Follow me to the holding cell".
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 10:19:21 AM EST
In the academy, we are taught to NEVER say, "Have a nice day." Their day sucks. They just got pulled over and probably got a ticket, do you really think they're going to have a nice day, now?

A friend got in trouble for telling people to have a nice day. Got complained on. So he adopted the phrase, "Have a blessed day." Few weeks into that, who'd he pull over? A wiccan chick. A practicing, honest-to-Vishnu, calls herself a witch. He told her to "Have a blessed day." Instant complaint. I think he's down to "Take care." now.
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 10:21:46 AM EST
If the person was cooperative, I ended with, "thank you for your cooperation, drive safely". Otherwise just, "drive safely".

Tell him to try "Alluha Ackbar" next time.

And if the person is a real jerk I'll add "Well I guess I will see you in court"

After a 72/60 citation!

Officer: Have a nice day!

Motorist: FUCK you very much!

I <3 Kellogg, and yes WPD is always there. I have ridden with my buddy that was in traffic numerous times where we sat and ran radar and called it in for the 4-5 officers a quarter mile down the road.

Citation = Drive safe

Warning = Have a good night
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 1:38:56 PM EST
I end with "Thank you for your co-operation, you are free to go, please be careful pulling back into traffic."

Or something pretty close to that, if there's no traffic, I leave that part out...

Do you have any questions? OK, you're free to go please pull back into traffic when it's safe. When I get back to the car I'll shut some of the lights off so you can actually see something.

Drive safely, and have a better rest of your day. I'll let you know when it is safe to pull back into traffic.

Verbal/ written warning = Have a safe day/night.

Citation= Have a safe day/night.

Dept. policy dictates that we are not allowed to say "Have a nice day."
Link Posted: 10/21/2009 4:35:11 AM EST
warning= "slow down and pay attention"
citation= "have a safe rest of your trip."
Link Posted: 10/21/2009 6:29:35 AM EST
Warning- have a good night and be careful , then I check traffic and let them know when it is safe to enter the roadway. Ticket- you be careful or ya'll be careful tonight and I let them know when it is clear to enter the roadway. Sometimes they hesitate to pull back onto the roadway, so I shut everything off except my rear deck lights so they can see it is safe. I am always courteous even when dealing with a shithead. The nastier they get the sweeter I get. I've been known to call a dude sweetheart.
