Nobody likes getting traffic tickets and, to be honest, we really don’t like giving them out. But research has shown that traffic enforcement is the most effective way to reduce the number of accidents, reduce injuries and save lives on the roadway. We have a very effective traffic enforcement program that results in thousands of traffic tickets issued to violators annually.
In order to better educate the motoring public the Moraine Police Division Traffic School Program was founded in 1995. The program allows violators who have received a traffic ticket but are otherwise good drivers to attend the three hour school on Saturday morning. Successful graduates have the traffic ticket dismissed, no fine to pay, no points on your driver’s license and no raise in insurance premiums.
Officer Jay Klemmensen is in charge of the Traffic School Program. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone,” says Officer Klemmensen. “We get our chance to educate the public about roadway safety with no monetary impact on the violators. We think the traffic school program has a long term impact on roadway safety.”
