Arguing, running away, or fighting with police are really stupid things to do, and can only lead to escalating situations.  The text below lists highlights from a publication by the Texas DPS concerning what to do if stopped by police.

• Park as far to the right of main traffic lanes as possible or park on a side street or parking lot.

Jerry, what you propose is so simple, even an idiot could follow the rules. Even an imbecile, or a moron too understands all you have to do is be polite and do what they ask. Keeping the mouth shut is the correct path. If you can't control the tongue... expect the worse and this goes for everyone. Everyone.
