85% of traffic tickets go to non-residents


In the last six months, the Medina Police Department has issued 85 percent of its traffic citations to people who live outside the Medina city limits, police department records show.

Police Chief Jerry Morris said that statistic does not seem out of the ordinary to him.

"I don't see what the big deal is," Morris said. "We stop cars, not people, and we don't choose who we write tickets to."
