This bill requires the Chief Administrator of the Motor Vehicle Commission to inform and test drivers on their responsibilities when interacting with a law enforcement officer during a traffic stop. Under the bill, the chief administrator is required to include in the driver's manual additional information advising drivers who are stopped by a law enforcement officer to pull to the far right side of the road, turn off the motor vehicle's engine and radio, avoid sudden movements, and keep the driver's hands in plain view of the officer. The bill allows the chief administrator to provide additional information in the manual regarding the driver's responsibilities. The chief administrator is permitted to distribute all remaining copies of the existing manual before reprinting it with the additional information. The bill also requires the chief administrator to expand the driver's license examination to include a question regarding responsibilities during a traffic stop
