This legislation sought to integrate into the current driver’s education curriculum the responsibilities of a driver during a traffic stop. That concept raised concerns for the ACLU and community advocates like the Human Rights Commission, RI for Community and Justice, and Jobs for Justice, who argued that in addition to learning about their responsibilities, drivers should be taught their rights during a traffic stop. However, House bill sponsor Joseph McNamara refused to accept any amendments to the bill, which fortunately died in the Senate.
