In 2017, StopWatch and Liberty published 'Driving While Black', a report calling calling for an end to discriminatory policing on our roads. The report also raised concerns that drivers were being targeted because they are Black, and that a new offence and search powers (tying road traffic policing to immigration enforcement) were likely to increase the incentive for racial profiling. You can read the original report here.
Last year we began working on new research on this topic, and hope to publish an updated report and relaunch the accompanying campaign next year. Watch this space!
