Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein Offers Free Car Repairs to Low-Income Residents to Reduce Traffic Stops.

Idea Category: Public Safety

Columbus City, Ohio Attorney Zach Klein is offering free car repairs to low-income residents in an effort to reduce traffic stops. The program will replace headlights and taillights, repair safety features, and provide regular emissions inspections at no cost to eligible households. Project Taillight has been praised as a win-win for community members and law enforcement, as it improves traffic safety and allows police to focus their attention elsewhere. “We needed to stop what we deemed to be a completely preventable police interaction,” Klein said, “and that’s an interaction driven by poverty, like a broken tail light or a headlight.”
