Number of Traffic Stops Made Specifically for vehicles in violation of the Passing a Stopped Emergency Vehicle (346.072) without changing lanes or reducing speed when unable to change lanes: 33
Number (out of the 33 total stops) of Vehicles in Violation of Statute Because the lane furthest from the motor vehicle was available and they failed to change lanes:25
Number of Vehicles that were unable to safely change lanes due to the lane adjacent to them being occupied and failed to reduce their speed below 55 MPH:8
