There's no question that it can be stressful to get pulled over by the police, but there's never a reason to flee. Fleeing or evading the police can lead to serious consequences that you wouldn't otherwise face.
If you drive in New Jersey or New York, then you're familiar with the E-ZPass. This is a quick way to pay for tolls that you have to cover daily or regularly.

People sometimes act like road rage is uncommon, something only really experienced by other drivers. The reality, though, is that it is incredibly common. Though not all situations lead to confrontations and arrests, of course, most people have felt road rage at one time or another.
Traffic crimes are normally situations that you wouldn't think of as having a major impact on others; speeding, weaving in and out of traffic in a rush or violating local traffic laws may all seem innocuous, but they can actually get you into deep trouble.
Evading police is a serious charge, because it means you did not stop when you were ordered to do so. Being pulled over is a part of life if you violate the law, but not stopping isn't usually an option. Whether you have an officer direct you to stop or see flashing lights behind you when you're driving, you need to pull to the side of the road. If you don't, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.
If you drive in Newark, you should know about new surveillance cameras installed to monitor their surroundings. According to a June 9 report, the cameras are accessible by the public, allowing almost anyone to see those within the camera's view.

It's against the law to drive your vehicle without registering it, having a license or carrying insurance. If you've been caught without your registration, that's a serious offense that could lead to deep trouble.
Evading police is something you don't ever want to do. Evading police refers to when you try to avoid an officer after he or she tries to stop you or pull you over. It's always better to stay calm and to look for a place to pull over if you're in your vehicle; running from the police only puts you and others in danger.
