stop stick
 n.— «Knudsen raced toward them and they had to swerve their cruisers on the narrow road, Sgt. Tom McCabe said. Knudsen then raced down Boynton Beach Boulevard; “stop sticks” set just east of Interstate 95 flattened Knudsen’s tires, but he drove 5 miles on the expressway until he was stopped.» —“Police Blotter” Palm Beach Post (Florida) Mar. 19, 1999.
