Black motorists in Illinois stopped, searched more than other drivers: report

State law enforcement agencies are much more likely to stop and search black drivers over routine traffic violations, a new report by the American Civil Liberties of Illinois found.

Police asked to conduct searches of vehicles driven by black motorists nearly twice as often as those driven by whites in 2017, according to the report. Police asked to search cars driven by Latinos 1.4 times more often those driven by whites.
