The expression “routine traffic stop” did not make George Carlin’s list of humorous oxymorons. Despite the wide-spread use of this idiom, there is nothing routine about any traffic stop. This is so for the police as well as citizens. Neither knows what will unfold during the encounter. And that is one reason no contact with the police is the best contact.Indeed, a recent traffic stop reported by nj dot com illustrates the point. The traffic stop led Lower Township police to arrest two men for outstanding warrants. Additionally, the cops found alleged heroin, a hypodermic needle, and other unspecified drugs and paraphernalia, per the news.
