Either the Westbrook Police have become more lenient, or they have run out of inattentive drivers to ticket. According to the 'Westbrook Police Notes' section in the American Journal, there were 23 summonses for traffic-related crimes* during April 9-15.
For context, there were 27 summonses last week, 80 summonses the week before that, and 108 between March 13 and March 20.
