Troopers ticket more in northeast Ohio county

Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol says ticketing in the state's largest county increased by 28% last year following the opening of a patrol post there.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the increase added up to more than 2,400 additional tickets in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland and its near suburbs. Warnings issued by troopers in the county increased by nearly the same number.

The patrol opened a post in the northeast Ohio county last summer.

The agency reports that neighboring Lake, Medina and Lorain counties also saw double-digit increases in ticketing.

Statewide, the number of enforcement stops by the patrol grew by 11% in 2012.
