When they should intervene

Re: Village curfews and public roads 

I think those aumaga should only intervene if cars are speeding or have loud music playing as they drive past a village in evening prayers.

They should never attempt to stop the vehicles altogether. 

In Sale’imoa, they came and closed the door of the main village store when I was there once and prevented anyone moving in or out. 

This included cars trying to leave the parking lot.
