Did you know that broken brake lights are one of the main reasons for police stops? Driving with broken lights can lead to costly fines or, under SB 4, to possible immigration consequences. If you're looking to change your lights, check out this event in Round Rock this Saturday starting at 10 am. Volunteers will help you do it for FREE! ...

Free Brake Light Change Clinic

February 17, 2018, 10:00am - February 17, 2018, 3:00pm

(traducción al español a continuación) Broken brake lights are one of the top reasons for traffic stops today. Traffic stops can have costly, time-consuming and even life-threatening consequences for undocumented residents, people of color and the poor and working classes. ​ In 2016, Philando Castile was killed by police after being stopped for a broken taillight. The state of Texas recently passed Senate Bill 4, which, despite several injunctions against the bill, still has a high likelihood of resulting in racial discrimination by police. And lastly, traffic fines can be costly, and not showing up in court or paying fines fast enough can have devastating consequences in Texas. For those working hourly or otherwise inflexible jobs, paying a $75 ticket or taking a day of unpaid time off from work to appear in court can have a real economic impact. Fines can quickly and exponentially increase until they cost more than $1,000 per ticket to manage, eventually resulting in a warrant for arrest — with warrant roundups conducted throughout the state to hunt those with unpaid traffic fines. ​ Volunteers from the Democratic Socialists of America will fix brake lights for area residents completely free of charge on Saturday Feb 17th. This free event is one in a series of direct actions organized to benefit the greater community. By reducing the opportunity for police stops that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations, DSA works for its vision of a more just, humane, and free society. ​ 🌹 HOW YOU CAN HELP 🌹 Share, share, share! Let as many people know about this event! _________________________________________________ Las luces de freno rotas son una de las principales razones para las paradas de tráfico en la actualidad. Las paradas de tráfico pueden tener consecuencias costosas, y hasta potencialmente mortales para los residentes indocumentados, las personas de color y los pobres y las clases trabajadoras. En 2016, Philando Castile fue asesinado por la policía después de ser detenido por una luz trasera rota. El estado de Texas aprobó recientemente el Ley del Senado 4, que, a pesar de varias medidas cautelares contra el proyecto de ley, todavía tiene una alta probabilidad de resultar en discriminación racial por parte de la policía. Y, por último, las multas de tráfico pueden ser costosas, y no presentarse en la corte o pagar multas puede tener consecuencias devastadoras en Texas. Para aquellos que trabajan por horas o para trabajos inflexibles, pagar una multa de $ 75 o tomarse un día de tiempo laboral puede tener un impacto económico real. Las multas pueden aumentar de manera rápida y exponencial hasta que le cuesten más de $ 1,000 por multa, lo que finalmente da como resultado una orden de arresto, con redadas de garantías realizadas en todo el estado para cazar a quienes tienen multas de tráfico impagas. Voluntarios del capítulo de Socialistas Democráticos de América fijarán las luces de freno para los residentes del área completamente gratis el sábado 17 de febrero. Este evento gratuito es uno de una serie de acciones directas organizadas para beneficiar a la comunidad en general. Al reducir la oportunidad de paradas policiales que afectan desproporcionadamente a las poblaciones vulnerables, DSA trabaja por su visión de una sociedad más justa, humana y libre.
