Laws should be enforced

A state task force for police reform has completed its recommendations which will be sent to the legislature for consideration. Among their recommendations is to stop police from enforcing minor traffic violations such as broken windshields, headlights, lights, and missing license plates. They claim the reason for this is that minority drivers are stopped more often than whites for these violations. If minority drives were to be stopped more for stop sign or traffic light violations than white drivers, do we stop police from enforcing these violations? What about speeding, or reckless driving? If they want the police to stop enforcing certain violations the legislature should remove the laws from the books. These laws were placed on the books for a reason, public safety. Stop handcuffing the police from doing their job which is protecting the general public.
