Dear ma'am or sir,

We apologize for the delay, as we believe our response to your pedestrian request also fulfilled this one.

We have looked at our citation records and reached out to our Records Management Software vendor, and we do not possess the data you have requested. We complete and submit citations to the state of North Carolina electronically, through software provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts (eCitation). Once submitted, we do not have database access to the citation data you request, or it is not collected. Only basic data from the citation are imported into our Records Management System, such as the name and demographics information of the person cited. Whether the person is a driver, pedestrian, or cyclist is not imported into our records system.

Please feel free to modify your request or contact me directly with any questions you might have about this response.
