Philadelphia bans all minor traffic stops… First city in USA… Decriminalizes ‘driving while black’…Tickets to be mailed instead…

Sharing is Caring!



Philadelphia on Thursday approved legislation that will bar its police officers from pulling over drivers for low-level motor vehicle offenses like broken taillights.


With a 14-2 vote, City Council passed the Driving Equality Bill, which details seven offenses — including improperly displayed registration or emission stickers — as “secondary violations” that cannot be the sole reason for police to pull over a driver. Instead, officers can issue citations for those infractions that will be mailed to drivers.

The legislation will take effect 120 days after Mayor Kenney signs it, which he is expected to do in the coming days.
