Do I have to stop for an unmarked police car that is behind me?

Yes, the police officers understand that drivers are skeptical of vehicles that do not have regular police markings and emergency lighting on the roof. Police officers expect drivers to travel to a well-lit and even populated location before stopping, such as a fast food restaurant or gas station. Police officers also understand if drivers are reluctant to roll their window down fully or leave their vehicle until it has been established that the driver is indeed being stopped by a legitimate police officer.
