Police stated that when stopping, drivers have to come to a complete stop, meaning their tires have to stop rolling.

“A ‘California Roll’ isn’t good enough,” the post states.

Finally, the HCPD reminded motorists that when turning right at a stop sign, they still have to come to a complete stop prior to any markings on the roadway.

“Drive defensively and stay safe out there everyone!” the post ended.
