*Counts of officer actions against violating vehicles in Table 3 may differ from counts of officer observed violations in Table 2. This is due to the fact that sometimes officers would not indicate what action they would take against a violator, rather they would just state that a violation occurred (i.e. “That car just cut that truck off”).
