Q. WHAT DO I DO IF I AM THE PASSENGER OF A CAR THAT HAS BEEN PULLED OVER AND THE POLICE ARE QUESTIONING ME?

A. If you are the passenger in a car that has been pulled over and the police are questioning you, ask the police officer if you are free to go. If the police officer responds yes, then you may either sit quietly or leave. If the police officer responds no, you may say that you wish to remain silent and ask for an attorney. In Pennsylvania, the passenger does not have to provide information such as name, address, or immigration status.
