The Southfield Police Department will launch a new community program, Please Stop Me, to provide a safe environment for new drivers to experience a traffic stop. Please Stop Me is set for Thursday, April 11 at 6 p.m. in the vacant parking lot at the corner of Civic Center Drive and Evergreen Road, directly across from the Southfield Municipal Campus.

Please Stop Me will allow teen drivers to experience a traffic stop in a safe and controlled environment, with a parent, in their own car. The program will focus on the safety of citizens as well as officers during traffic stops. New drivers will learn the various reasons for traffic stops and what to do if they are ever involved in a traffic accident.

Please Stop Me is open to high school students with a valid driver’s license or driving permit who live or attend school in Southfield. Drivers must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Participants must bring their valid driver’s license or driving permit, vehicle registration and proof of insurance. Parents and legal guardians must also bring identification.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, contact Officer Pate at (248) 796-5360 or or Officer Buckberry at (248) 796-5409 or
