A new report shows an increase in racial disparity when it comes to vehicle stops in Missouri. Michele Skalicky has more.
Attorney General Jay Nixon presented the 7th annual report on traffic stops in MO to the governor and the General Assembly.
The report provides racial and ethnic information about drivers who were stopped by MO law enforcement in the state in 2006.
A law passed in 2000 requires all officers in Missouri to report specific information for each vehicle stop made in the state.
