Hopefully, you’re not the sort of person who finds themselves on the wrong side of the law due to driving above the speed limit.

However, if you do ever find yourself pulled over by a cop for overdoing it a bit on the accelerator, one US lawyer has shared the one thing you shouldn't say.

Taking to YouTube, attorney Narimon Pishnamaz revealed the ‘number one most asked question when cops pull you over’ as well as how you should respond to it.

He explained: “The cops will ask you, ‘where are you coming from?’ or ‘where are you headed?’”

Narimon, who refers to himself online as ‘Attorney Pish’, continued: “The cop’s testing to see if you were drinking.

“If you answer the question with, ‘I came from a party’, now he’s gonna assume you had something to drink. Instead, don’t answer that. Invoke your fifth amendment right to remain silent.”

However, not all of Attorney Pish’s followers were convinced, with one replying: “Leading with that sounds like a good way to p**s off a cop and get a guaranteed ticket lol.”

Someone else quipped: “I tell them the truth, and waste both of our time. Gotta make sure I get my tax dollars worth,” while a third person said: “If you go full ‘due process’ so will they. You have the right to be a jerk, the cop has the right to write up every minor violation from a dirty licence plate to speeding.”

Back in February, another lawyer who uses TikTok shared his advice for anyone caught speeding by authorities.

Mike Mandell - who claims to be the number one lawyer on social media - uses the platform to share legal expertise with followers, whether it be surrounding getting kicked off a plane, having a bad landlord, or the risks of using a fake ID.

In one of his videos, Mandell said that if you’re pulled over for driving too fast and asked how fast you think you were going, you should simply reply: “How fast was I going?”

He went on: “Never ever admit to speeding, because anything you say will be used against you.”

The post amassed over 50 million views, with users flooding to the video to weigh in on the scenario and their views on Mandell's advice. One said: “Results may vary due to skin tone.”

Another wrote: “But what if they lie and say I went super above the speed limit? What should we do then?”, while a third commented: “Or just don't speed.”
