Profiling is one thing. I don’t want to see the City of Decatur police to have their hands tied, because too many tickets, insurance checks, speeding, texting while driving go without being addressed. That is what has happened in DeKalb County.
I live on Sycamore Drive. I see more and more drivers use this as a cut through, speeding, texting and driving etc.
Periodic road blocks on Ponce between Commerce and DeKalb Industrial Way to check for driver’s licenses and insurance cards would be a way to address profiling. I think the city would be surprised what this action would produce.
How about enforcing lane changes without a blinker!!!! Do we want people who want to be excused from this enforcement in our neighborhoods anyway??
The truth in the numbers are facts, not profiling.
