Driversnonaccommodativebehaviors(i.e.,dismissiveness,indifference,andbelligerence) were all nonsignificant with regard to both dimensions of outcome,b²³.014,t(67)²³0.115,p².91,b²³.111,t(67)²³0.917,p².362,b²³.009,t(67)²³0.073,p².94. Logistic regressions performed to assess driverbelligerence on repercussions of the stop or whether a break was offered werenonsignificant,x2(1,N²69)²1.259,p².26,x2(1,N²69)²0.350,p².55. In sum,there was no support for the presence of a relationship between and of the threedrivers nonaccommodative behaviors, i.e., dismissiveness, indifference, and belli-gerence, being related to extensive policing, whether they received a citation or arrest,or whether a break was offered.The fourth hypothesis predicted that intergroup encounters would be judged lessaccommodative and more nonaccommodative than intragroup encounters. In termsof the officers behavior, an ANOVA assessing driver ethnicity on officer accom-modation revealed a significant result. White (non-Latino) officers accommodatedLatino drivers (M²2.41,SD²0.65) significantly less than White (non-Latino)drivers (M²2.75,SD²0.64),F(1, 67)²4.849,p².03,h2².067.An ANOVAassessing driver ethnicity on officer nonaccommodation revealed a nonsignificantfinding despite the direction of the means. White (non-Latino) officers did notsignificantlydifferintheirlevelofnonaccommodationtowardLatinodrivers(M²0.333,SD²0.70) and White (non-Latino) drivers (M²0.210,SD²0.44),F(1, 67)²0.781,p².38,h2².012. Therefore, there is partial support for thehypothesis; White (non-Latino) officers were less accommodative with Latino driversthan White (non-Latino) drivers.An ANOVA assessing driver ethnicity on the drivers accommodation revealed asmall but significant result. Latino drivers (M²2.35,SD²0.60) accommodatedWhite(non-Latino)officerssignificantlylessthanWhite(non-Latino)drivers(M²2.71,SD²0.50),F(1, 67)²7.454,p².01,h2².100. Three ANOVAs, assessingdriver ethnicity on the three measures of the drivers nonaccommodation, were eachnonsignificant. The first ANOVA revealed Latino drivers (M²0.32,SD²0.81) didnot significantly differ in their level of dismissiveness toward White (non-Latino)officers than White (non-Latino) drivers (M²0.34,SD²0.68),F(1, 67)²0.012,p².92,h2².000. The second ANOVA revealed Latino drivers (M²0.15,SD²0.44)did not significantly differ in their level of indifference toward White (non-Latino)officers than White (non-Latino) drivers (M²0.17,SD²0.38),F(1, 67)²0.061,p².81,h2².001. The third ANOVA revealed Latino drivers (M²0.00,SD²0.00)418H. Gileset al.Downloaded by [University of Texas Libraries] at 15:44 22 August 2013

did not significantly differ in their level of belligerence toward White (non-Latino)officers than White (non-Latino) drivers (M²0.06,SD²0.34),F(1, 67)²0.971,p².33,h2².014. Therefore, partially supporting H4, Latino drivers were lessaccommodative toward White (non-Latino) officers.
