First Vermont now Connecticut when are the people of New England going to wake up to whats happening!!!!!!

Maybe theyre breaking the law more than whites.

Apparently the Hispanics dont understand what liberal states stand for. They want things their way lawless like where they came from. Nameless people wanting a free ride. They just want the road paved for more illegals, period

These hispanic groups are having these studies done and I think they are BULLSHIT!

Yup, you all keep on ignoring this,lets just keep the blame on East Haven.

Nobody wants to face the fact that these people just dont follow rules.

I'm going to go speeding through town now with an unregistered car, see where that gets me! LOL

There are more "minorities" in CT than others.

Historically, they commit more traffic violations.

ergo: there are more traffic arrests.

It is plain old arithmetic, nothing more, nothing less.

To those who play the race/ethnicity race card... get a life...

you break a traffic law, you get a ticket. You obey the laws, you don't get a ticket. It's like someone telling me that themajority of traffic arrests in Paris are by Frenchmen.
