In the last two weeks I saw the Altamonte Springs police writing people up at two places I passed by. One was at I-4 and 436 and the other was at 434 & Wekiva Springs Rd. Running red lights and blocking intersections was the major offence.
I was impressed by this law enforcement activity, so I dropped the Chief an email note telling him how impressed I was by his officers actions … and I got a reply.
He expressed frustration at how high the fines were and that he wished they weren’t so high. There is a Laffer Curve when it comes to tickets, but I’ll bet my email made his day.
After all, how many people drop a Chief a note thanking him for what he does?
I’ve sent complaints (as Mighk can attest to), but I also send compliments.
