MIDDLETON, Wis. - A Middleton police officer received an unexpected thank you note this week from a driver.
The note said Officer Kim Wood stopped the driver for speeding in a 35 mph section of County Highway M.
"While not 'above and beyond' I want to thank Officer Wood for slowing me down in my rush to get back to my office," the note said. "My speed was more than a little exuberant."
The stop made the driver rethink driving on the highway.
"Since then I have been mindful of the speed and enjoying the scenery, though cars behind me do not always seem to share my appreciation," the note said. "May all traffic stops result in drivers rethinking their actions."
The police department was grateful for the rare thank you note and said it was "another fine example of the little things we do every day that make a difference."
