SCOTTS LAW = MOVE OVER
DO NOT drink and drive!
Police have been promoting they were going to be out in full force this weekend. So I worked this scene to promote their campaign and show that police will be out and about all weekend and will pull you over, as they been promoting. And to also bring awareness to the Scotts Law.
As for this scene, I only stopped to take photos of the scene to promote the Labor Day weekend campaign. It appeared to be just a routine traffic stop, and the man was not in cuffs. So, I did not bother asking the officers any information about the scene, and wasting their time and mine. I was told not long after I left the scene, they let the man go.
