GOOD LUCK! Portland Police Will No Longer ‘Pull People Over for Traffic Violations’

Police in Portland, Oregon will reportedly no longer pull drivers over for “routine” traffic violations like missing license plates or failing to use a turn signal; raising new questions over the safety and security of drivers in the region.

“Portland’s police chief and mayor are set to announce Tuesday that city police will no longer be directed to stop motorists for low-level infractions, such as equipment failures or expired plates, to reduce disproportionate stops of people of color,” reports Oregon Live.

“The changes also are aimed at curtailing the potential for deadly encounters between police and people of color and allowing police to focus on more serious violations that pose an immediate threat to public safety,” adds the website.
