This week, a three-bill package was introduced in the Senate aimed at facilitating positive interactions between law enforcement officers and civilians during traffic stops. The bills direct the Secretary of State and the Michigan State Police to develop a program on how to interact with law enforcement during a traffic stop. The guidelines would be included in current driver’s education curriculums so students are familiar with what to do before getting behind the wheel. The legislation also instructors the Secretary of State to provide a pamphlet that includes a summary of the developed material to drivers 25 and under who are renewing their license. Additionally, officers involved in a traffic stop must provide drivers with a business card that contains contact information. The bill package has been referred to the Senate Transportation Committee for consideration.
