Republican Bill Repealing Prohibitions on Traffic Stops Killed in State Senate

Senator Ryan McDougal (SD 4) introduced a bill that would “remove the provisions that provide that no law-enforcement officer may lawfully stop a motor vehicle for operating (i) without a light illuminating a license plate, (ii) with defective and unsafe equipment, (iii) without brake lights or a high mount stop light, (iv) without an exhaust system that prevents excessive orĀ unusual levels of noise, (v) with certain sun-shading materials and tinting films, and (vi) with certain objects suspended in the vehicle, and the accompanying the exclusionary provisions.”

Senator Surovell (SD 36 – Fairfax, Prince William) voted to kill this bill.
