It was not your routine traffic stop in Rochester Tuesday. Police pulled over a driver on Meigs Street for running a stop sign, and discovered he was deaf.Police say a second man stopped after recognizing the deaf driver. That second man knew sign language and acted as an interpreter.But when the first driver was asked for his license, police said an argument ensued. The second driver was charged with obstructing governmental administration.The first driver faces the same charge, and was ticketed for failing to stop at a stop sign.

    Oh, I did fail at stop at the stop sign, but all I got is a warning from a police. I never got a ticket…I always say oh, I am so sorry! Then I got a warning and I don’t get a ticket.

    If the cops pull me over …I don’t want the rusty signer or anyone acts like an interpreter to be around when there is a communication between the law officers and I. I prefer to have a certified interpreter with a legal specialist certificate
