Assunto:  Getting pulled over
 
Mensagem:  It means that police officers have commanded you to move your car to the edge of the street and stop.  Usually, this is done by officers in a police car.  It can also be done by officers on foot.

The command, if given verbally, is usually "Pull over!" or "Pull over to the curb and stop!"  They may ask you to turn the engine off and remain in your car.

What is the equivalent in Portuguese?  I was stopped many times in "blitzes", but no command was given.  I knew what was wanted and I did it.
