“Dear PoP,

What’s the protocol for traffic stops? This police officer blocked an exit with this traffic stop in Georgetown in front of 2208 wisconsin ave. We had to call 311 to call the district office to ask her to move after the officer refused to move up when we asked her nicely. The 2nd district and 1st district offices could not decide whose jurisdiction it was when we called 311 to ask for assistance!

We were in a Georgetown university GUTS bus and there were 10 cars behind us. It took 30 mins to get through.”

Anyone ever experience a situation like this? Unless there was a fear that the driver was a threat, seems like the right thing to do would’ve been to just have the car move up 5 feet.
