Arizona 'right to light' sought by Dibor Roberts supporters

Dibor Roberts and her supporters, as part of their continuing effort to ensure that Dibor Roberts's ordeal at the hands of an out-of-control police officer is never repeated, have launched the A Woman's Right to Light campaign.

For those not in the know: Roberts was driving along isolated Beaverhead Flat Road at night in rural Yavapai County, Arizona, when a car with flashing red and blue lights attempted to pull her over. Concerned by reports of police impersonators, Roberts decided to follow the advice of many law enforcement agencies, including the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office, to slow down, proceed to a well-lit, populated area, and then pull over.

Unfortunately, Sergeant Jeff Newnum quickly flew into a rage, forced Roberts's car off the road, smashed her window and dragged her from the vehicle.

For following Sheriff Waugh's own advice, Roberts was eventually found guilty of resisting arrest and flight from a police officer and sentenced to six months of unsupervised probation. It turned out that the recommendations have no legal force -- civilians follow them at their own risk.

The A Woman's Right to Light Website allows visitors to sign the following petition:

"We, the undersigned, call on the Arizona Legislature to pass a law that states that a woman has the right to drive to a lighted, populated area when being stopped by law enforcement at night, for her safety and that of the officer. The woman would be required to signal the officer by turning on her hazard lights and reducing her speed to a specified limit to communicate her intention to stop in a lighted area. Such a law would be included on the state motor vehicle website and in all materials published for driver's education."

Personally, given the reality not just of police impersonators but also of rogue cops, I think the right to light should apply to everybody. But the legislation advocated by the campaign strikes me as a step in the right direction.
