The Flashing Lights video will be used to fulfill this requirement. The video demonstrates the proper actions for law enforcement officers and motorists to take during a traffic stop, including:

Instructors should use the Community Safety Education Act PowerPoint Presentation (PPTX) as a teaching guide to the video.

Texas Driving with Disabilities Program

The Texas Driving with Disabilities program focuses on improving the interaction between law enforcement and drivers with disabilities who have unique communication needs. Texans now have the option to disclose “Communication Impediment” directly on the front of their Department of Public Safety-issued Driver License or State ID or added to their vehicle record when registering their vehicle through the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. This designation will alert trained officers to an individual who may be slower to respond to commands or to one who is deaf or hard of hearing. 

TDLR collaborated with the Texas Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities, the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, and the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement to develop information about the Texas Driving with Disabilities Program that must be included in the required Driver Education & Safety curriculum.
