Teenagers in Texas may soon be taught how to properly interact with police officers if pulled over in a traffic stop. That's the intention of legislation proposed by State Sen. John Whitmore of Houston.
The legislation calls for the training to be included in traditional driver's training classes and it would be mandatory for all Texas 9th graders.
Although some students are already given basic education concerning how to interact with police officers during traffic stops, the bill would propose going a step further in codifying the lesson plans.
Thus far, the proposal appears to be widely supported.
