“If you encounter a driver who is trying to engage you in conflict, please drive to the nearest police station. Please don’t get out of your car and please don’t engage in the conflict,” said Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties. “For drivers who may be upset about seeing someone roll a stop sign, they should simply report the driver to the police with the time, location, licence, plate, etc. It is not acceptable to attempt to enforce the law themselves or intimidate other drivers.”
