We recently purchased some Not-Reaching Pouches to help reduce deadly force encounters between law enforcement and citizens during traffic stops. The pouches store a driver’s license, and insurance card in plain sight in the vehicle on an air vent or other visible location.

The easiest way to reduce deadly force encounters during a standard traffic stop is for the officer to simply not shoot the person getting the documents they've asked for.

How about cops just stop shooting minorities like it’s their job?
