On Saturday Sept. 21, 2019 I brought in two high school students to conduct an interview with Jackie and Wayne Carter. I felt the need to spread awareness on safe traffic stops and introduce a solution for them. The high school students provided some stats around the subject as well; 1 out of every 1000 black men are killed during a traffic stop and 90% of police brutality goes unnoticed and/or is reported. Jackie and Wayne Carter identified the problem and took initiative to provide education and support to drivers. One of the key points mentioned in the interview was the fact that we are taught to drive but aren't taught how to respond to a traffic stop.
The Not Reaching tool is a pouch that clips to your dashboard that eliminates reaching for your ID and insurance documentation. It is a start to safe traffic stops. The couple also are working closely on providing drivers insight on the police officers perspectives and bridging the gap between our communities and law enforcement officials which is extremely important.
Huge thanks to Reemo Animations and Malik for interviewing my guest! For more information on the "Not Reaching " Movement please visit www.notreaching.com #NotReaching
