Good to Know Video: Traffic Stops

Every day Washington State Troopers and other police officers conduct one of the most dangerous aspects of police work: traffic stops. When making stops, police have no idea if they are contacting a wanted felon or an ordinary citizen who violated a simple traffic law.
In the latest edition of WSP’s “Good to Know” series, Sergeant Julie Judson offers tips and suggestions that can help make traffic stops safer and more pleasant for everyone involved.

The Washington State Patrol video can be viewed here.

The ultimate goal of a traffic stop is not necessarily to write tickets. The first goal is to make sure the traffic stop is conducted safely for all involved. The second goal is to educate the individual driver with the hope of changing dangerous driving behavior.
