Danger: Cops are on the Road


undefined

Once police stop you, a ticket is the least of your worries,” writes Jacob Sullum early on in his new Reason article “10 Ways a Roadside Police Stop Can Go Wrong.”

After starting off with a short examination of the discretion police have to pull over vehicles on the road for a plethora of reasons, Sullum addresses, in turn, ten of the ways beyond a ticket that a traffic stop can be harmful. He starts with number one, having one’s driver license taken away, and proceeds on to number ten, being killed.

Read Sullum’s very informative and disturbing article
here to learn how much the deck is stacked against drivers and their passengers when their vehicles are stopped by cops on the road.
