Broken brake lights are a common reason people are pulled over by police— and pulled into the criminal justice system. These community service events are one way of reducing burdens faced by community members.
Broken brake lights are among the most common reasons people are pulled over by police — and pulled into the criminal justice system. These community service events are a simple way of assisting community members by reducing the possibility of police interaction and increasing public safety. In addition to the dangers of a potential police interaction, the cost of a ticket incurred for a broken brake light can be burdensome, especially for low-income households. An unpaid ticket for something as trivial as a broken taillight can snowball into a court appearance or worse. Buffalo DSA will be hosting at least two clinics, but we'd like to make it an open ended project. We are training volunteers and have received a lot of enthusiasm from our community. Any help is appreciated! Any funds exceeding the cost of the brake light clinics will go to help future restorative justice projects of Buffalo DSA.
If you prefer offline interaction, we will be getting together for the benefit at Mr. Goodbar 1110 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222 on Saturday, February 10th from 5-7PM.
