"People are out here driving 6,000-pound missiles that need to be under control," Chesterfield Police Sgt. Stephan Rouze said while on patrol. "Your focus needs to be on the roadway, when you're behind the wheel. That's your responsibility. And if you're irresponsible with that, then we're gonna hold you accountable."

In addition to Hull Street Road, police patrolled Courthouse Road, Bailey Bridge Road, Old Hundred Road S., and Genito Road.
