The San Antonio Police Department is releasing a new new public service announcement called "Traffic Stop Safety" to let driver's know what they can and should do if they are pulled over.
The PSA comes nearly a week after SAPD issued a press release urging the public to watch out for a man posing as a police officer to conduct traffic stops.
According to SAPD, a woman in her late 20s was recently pulled over at night on the North Side by a dark-colored vehicle with red and blue lights on the dashboard.
The woman was ordered to get out of the vehicle and was attacked by the man, police said. The woman managed to escape but suffered some minor injuries.
The new PSA is a minute long and features SAPD Chief William McManus telling viewers safety is their number one priority.
McManus says in the PSA drivers who are involved in a traffic stop do not have to immediately pull over in poorly lit or isolated areas.
McManus also explains what drivers need to do to let the officer know that you see them as you proceed to the closest well-lit and populated area.
The public service announcement should begin airing in the coming days, San Antonio police said.
