Question: Can a police pull me over in Wisconsin if they receive a call from another motorist about the way I am driving?

Answer: Under some circumstances, yes. If there is specific information from a caller that identifies a traffic violation or a reason to believe that there is criminal activity that could be occurring, that can be enough for an officer to stop a vehicle to do some further investigation. The call does have to be quite specific as to the actions in order for it to be legal for the officer to stop that vehicle, but there are some circumstances under which that can happen.
