TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office is being more proactive in its response to traffic complaints.
In January, it let citizens send an email detailing any grievances they may have about traffic.
Sheriff Bob Goldsmith said in his 23 year career with law enforcement the biggest complaint is how people drive.
He wants his department to be transparent and efficient in its feedback with the certain areas where complaints were the highest.
Goldsmith laid out his goal for this program Monday.
"We don't want to write tickets but there are times when a ticket is written, but we want to save lives," said Goldsmith. "We want to be in those areas where we are having serious crashes; have a presence there to save lives."
Goldsmith said he plans to do these follow-ups monthly.
He laid out the results in a Facebook post.
Listed below are some of the areas with the highest amount of traffic complaints and stops:
- Construction Zone on Schuyler Avenue, 31 stops
- Failure to yield at the roundabout on SR 25, 25 stops
- CR 900 E from SR 26 to 800 N, 19 stops.
