Proposed Ohio law would teach teens how to interact with officers during traffic stops

A newly proposed Ohio bill looks to reduce tensions between police officers and young drivers by teaching them how to react to the officer’s commands at an early age.

Right now the Ohio Department of Public Safety tells new drivers to pull over, roll down the window, keep hands in plain view, be cooperative, and to obey the officer’s direction.

But Ohio Senate Bill 16 wants to take it a step farther and teach teens how to better react to the officer’s instructions.

According to WBNS, the law would also teach high school students about their constitutional rights when it comes to unlawful searches and videotaping officers.

Sen. Sandra Williams (D)

State Senator Sandra Williams hopes the education lessons decreases the number of potentially deadly conflicts between police and drivers.
