WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – It may be a kinder, gentler approach to traffic enforcement, letting drivers off with a warning, instead of a fine, for minor violations, but is it enough to prevent accidents and keep Wichita streets safe?
KSN has tracked this issue for a year and is digging into the latest data to find out.
Last February, KSN’s Stephanie Bergmann talked to WPD brass about the effort to build goodwill in the community by not issuing expensive traffic tickets for small driving mistakes.
Now, one year later, she checks the city accident rates to see what impact this new policy is having.
