My feeling EXACTLY.
First to avoid risking this at all, don't violate any traffic or other laws. In TX that is hard due to the revenue factor for citations
Then to be prepared for any vehicle stops, carry a power point slide show on your phone and an additional print out of the slide show to teach the person how to safely unload the weapon with big photographs

I can honestly say I have worked with and still do, some that could not safely clear any weapon but their duty weapon at best. (I also saw the same thing during the CHL course qual in 07 upon moving to TX.) Not everybody is familiar with firearms. Smart ones know to ask for help.
The AG suggestion is a good one.
