John Pezold's thoughts

HB 474 requires driver's manuals to contain a chapter for best practices for all parties during traffic stops by law enforcement.
The bill also requires the Governor's Office of Highway Safety to create a yearly campaign to advertise for the chapter and the practices.

I voted NO because I do not believe this is something the state should be legislating. It also could bring about liability concerns if a person follows the chapter and an altercation or problem ensues any way.
