'Don't get shot by police' is goal of new advice in Arizona driver's manual

• tucson.com By Howard Fischer

The provisions tell motorists what to do if they're pulled over by a police officer. They also provide specific warnings about what not to do, like reaching around in the vehicle or getting out.

The goal is pretty simple, said state Rep. Reginald Bolding, a Laveen Democrat who helped write the section.

It's designed to keep drivers from getting shot by police.

Bolding, who is black, said the record shows that victims of police shootings during traffic stops are more likely to be black or Hispanic.

"When you look at what's taken place across the country, you have seen a majority of individuals who are people of color that have had higher incidence of interactions with law-enforcement officers, particularly in shootings," he said. "Hopefully we can get to a place where that's not the reality."
