Many preventable crashes result from an illegal or unsafe driver behavior, such as speeding, distracted driving, or following too closely. Research has consistently shown highly visible traffic enforcement will deter drivers from such behaviors.

This reluctance is grounded in both a lack of knowledge and skills relating to these types of vehicle stops and a level of comfort which often comes with experience.
