Police in California are prohibited from asking a typical question during a car stop.

From January 2024, officers will no longer be able to start a dialogue with the driver with this question - the new law obliges them to state the purpose of the stop before asking any question. The same applies to pedestrian stops.

On the subject: In Florida, police arrested a man for eating shellfish: he faces a long prison sentence.

Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 2773 into law in the fall of 2022, effective January 1, 2024.

Under this law, an officer may withhold a reason for a stop only if he believes it is necessary “to protect life or property from an imminent threat.”

The law is intended to reduce the number of “no probable cause stops,” in which an officer stops a car or pedestrian for a minor infraction in order to search the driver and vehicle to determine whether a more serious crime has been committed, such as having expired documents or certain items.

It was created to reduce tension in interactions between police and civilians.

The bill's author, Assemblyman Chris Holden, told a legislative committee hearing that he created it to "promote fairness and accountability in communities."
