IDOT Traffic Stop Data Task Force

Urbana Resolution Accepting the Final Report of the Urbana IDOT Traffic Stop Data Task Force. Res. 2015-12-073R. Dec. 2015

The Task Force successfully completed its work on December 7, 2015 with the publication of it's Final Report.

The I.D.O.T. Traffic Stop Data Task Force is charged with identifying and studying any racial disparities that may exist in local traffic stop data supplied annually to the City by the Illinois Department of Transportation (I.D.O.T.), and attempting to find the source and cause of any disparity.

The Task Force is directed to examine multiple aspects of the traffic stop data, including race, driver age, residence, stop time, stop location, the reason for the stop, vehicle age, and any other information the Task Force finds to be useful.  The Task Force will also look beyond traffic stop data to consider census and unemployment data, high school graduation rates, and incarceration statistics from the September 2013 study of the Champaign County justice system.

  • Meeting Schedule. The Task Force holds regular monthly meetings as listed on this board page.  Special meetings may be held as deemed necessary.  Task Force meetings are open to the public in accordance with the Illinois Open Meetings Act and public participation is welcome.
