We would like to clarify some issues regarding traffic stops. When we are on a traffic stop, you are not allowed to approach the officers for any reasons. It does not matter if it is on private property or not. State statute supports the officer following through the traffic stop and if you interfere, you may be taken to jail for obstructing a police officer in the performance of his duties.
If you are pulled over for failing to stop at a stop sign, please understand that if your wheels did not come to a complete stop and there was not a cessation of forward movement, you are wrong. You must understand that if you fail to stop, you are running the risk of being stopped by the police. Whether you are cited or not depends on the severity of the infraction and your attitude.
Attitude is everything in your contact with a police officer. There is no excuse to be rude to a police officer doing his job. They are not trying to harass you, you just gave them an opportunity to meet you. They are just doing their job.
