Debate Includes "The Talk" By Black Parents - One Remedy
Biden Describes Safety Rules For Black Youths; Here's How To Reinforce Them
This emphasizes the real danger many people face of being shot during a car stop if they do not behave in certain ways, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who has developed a partial remedy to help reduce these unnecessary shootings.

After all, the major concern is to deter wrongful shootings of civilians by police, says Banzhaf, who developed something that every parent of a teen driver should download and mount in their car.
It appears that in the majority of questionable shootings by police of both Blacks and Whites, the individuals either did not fully comply with police directions and/or took some sudden action which could create concern for officer safety and lead to a shooting.
While this does not in any way excuse or justify shootings by police which are wrongful, it does suggest that, had the driver and/or passengers acted differently, they might not have been shot.
To help educate and remind all drivers how to act when stopped by police so as to minimize any chances of being shot, Banzhaf has developed a set of simple and clear guidelines to be clearly displayed in cars.
They are designed to be mounted on both sides of both front-window sun visors where they will be readily visible to the driver and to the front-seat passenger at all times.

While all of the instructions are simple and basic, it is important that they be immediately available and clearly visible to people who are stopped by the police, since the event can be filled with tension, and all too easily lead to mistakes by a frighted or careless driver or passenger.
Banzhaf notes that pilots and surgeons - who may perform the same landings or surgical operations day after day - now nevertheless must have before them, and follow, a checklist of things they are required to do. His car-mounted placard provides a similar checklist of steps which should be taken by drivers.
