What questions do you have to answer when stopped by the police?
When you're pulled over by the police, you are being detained. The officers will often ask questions. While you have the right to remain silent and not incriminate yourself, there are questions that you must answer, which are called routine booking questions and include your name. Additionally, you must produce your license and registration if requested. You do not have to say if you have been drinking and what is in the car, among other information.
