The Philadelphia City Council passed two bills that will create a public, searchable database of traffic stops and bar police officers from pulling over drivers for low-level motor vehicle offenses, a tactic that disproportionately impacted Black drivers.

One of the bills amended the city's Traffic Code to reclassify seven offenses, including broken taillights and improperly displayed registration stickers, as "secondary violations," The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. If a driver commits a secondary violation, police officers will issue a citation by mail rather than pulling over the offender.

How about instead of sending them a citation, give them a warning and if they are struggling to correct the issue on their own then provide them with resources to assist them.
