Rep. Terra Costa Howard (D-Glen Ellyn), Wheaten North High School student Henry Lytle and Rep. Katie Stuart (D-Edwardsville) speak during the House Transportation Committee Thursday.
When Henry Lytle and his twin brother became old enough to drive, Lytle realized his brother might encounter a common situation on the road that might be difficult for him to handle: getting pulled over by the police.
Lytle’s brother has autism, and Lytle said unfamiliar situations or moments that make him nervous can cause his brother to have difficulty communicating or react in unconventional ways that might also make police officers on a traffic stop nervous.
