Just installed the remaster now that it's available on Steam and have been messing around with it a bit.

You can do a lot of cool things with scripting in this game, but unfortunately 99% of it only works on scripted mission NPCs and not in the open world gameplay, which is really limiting.
That being said! I did discover a cool way of bypassing this by making random civilian NPCs recruitable as followers, which enables some more script functions to work on them. Here's an example.
You can see I managed to get the car in front to stop and then surrender with hands up...
Also, the sirens stay on after you exit your car!
