We receive phone calls now and then from people who have observed a serious traffic violation. There’s not a lot we can do about it after the fact, in most cases. We have a process, though, by which we will collect the information on the more significant cases, and send a form letter to the registered owner. The object is to encourage him or her to drive more safely in the future
Last week, the registered owner of a 1998 Cadillac received a form letter with my facsimile signature at the bottom. The violation is described as follows:
“Your vehicle was observed being operated with a medium-sized dog standing on the steering wheel while the vehicle was in motion.”
Hmmm. Too bad I didn’t look at that one before it went out. Maybe we should have sent the letter to the dog this time.
