Program allowing drivers to be pseudo-police officers

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. - A new program implemented by New Bern police will allow drivers to report other drivers who are speeding, texting or driving recklessly.

The program, dubbed "Citizens Initiating Traffic Education and Safety" or CITES, uses reports from drivers to investigate those driving recklessly.

If a driver is believed to have broken a law, they receive a warning letter advising them of the consequences if they get caught by a police officer.

The letter doesn't go on a driver's record because a police officer didn't witness the actual traffic violation.
