UK Children Used for Traffic Stop Publicity
Thames Valley, UK police are teaching children and motorists a lesson by bringing students on traffic stops.

Police in Thames Valley, UK are bringing children along on traffic stops during "Police Week" so that the ten and eleven year-olds will meet face-to-face with motorists pulled over for various offenses. The idea is to have the children tell the offending motorist why speeding is wrong and to teach children a "good lesson" in the process.

In the US, roadside stops are considered dangerous and are the third-leading cause of death for police officers according to the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
