Regarding traffic stop

Asked about 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

if I got pulled over for a red light I was stop 1 and half block from the location where the police says I ran the red lights, my questions are:

1-if I ask to step out my car to take pictures of the location I was stop, the police ordered me to stay in my car isn't it wrong for evidence

2-if the cops did not put the exact location for instance I was stop in front of a home and did not put the home number isn't wrong information on the ticket
