Traffic Stop Data: All charts rely on data supplied by law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Vermont. This data is available here: Crime Research Group – TRAFFIC STOP & RACE DATA
Driver percentages by race are derived from the Vermont DMV Accident database and the US American Community Survey (5-year average through 2017)
The average VT Search Rate for 2017 across all races is 1.6%.
A lower hit rate could indicate an excess of unnecessary searches.
