Harrisburg, Pa. – Democratic House lawmakers on Friday introduced a bill to prevent police officers from using traffic stops as a pretext for searches.

"Traffic stops are the most common interaction Americans have with police; but, for Black drivers, these interactions with police can be highly problematic," Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Philadelphia, said.

H.B. 1361 would prevent evidence from being introduced in court that was obtained as a result of certain stops for summary traffic violations.
