We have also taken the key points from the video so you can read them here. There are four basic points you need to know.

When an official vehicle wants you to stop, it will display a flashing red light in addition to the blue lights. This red light means you must stop your vehicle by manoeuvring to the right hand side of the road.

 

You must stop your vehicle in a place where it doesn´t cause an increased risk to other road users, it this is not possible, you must continue until you can stop in a safe place. The patrol will stop their vehicle behind yours.

 

All the occupants of your vehicle must remain inside the vehicle. The officer will approach you on the right side of your vehicle to notify the reason for stopping you.

 

Once the officers have finished dealing with you, they will assist you in joining the main flow of traffic.
