No cop, no stop. 

It's an old saying and its one of the most common complaints from driver's on Omaha roads, people rolling and even running stop signs. 

Everyone knows people should come to a complete stop at stop signs, but in practice, it's not always that way, and it has some concerned. 

"It is a safety concern because if you're not coming to a complete stop, you never know what could be coming into the intersection," John Sokolik with Omaha Police said. 

Jennifer Neiber, an Omaha mother, said she often sees people dangerously rolling signs in her Pacific Meadows neighborhood, one that has a lot of children in it. 

"If you're going fast enough to hit squirrels out here in the street, you know, you're going fast enough to a hit a pedestrian."
