According to the auditor’s report, fees for traffic diversion and the education requirement vary widely. “Existing local traffic diversion programs reviewed by the OSA vary from an eight to ten minute online course to live sessions lasting more than two hours conducted by law enforcement personnel at the local law enforcement center,” the report said.

Ebeltoft said he’s aware that the state auditor is critical of the programs but is moving forward anyway.

“There is no legislation or laws that prohibit it,” Ebeltoft said. “The benefit far outweighs the controversy. The benefit is on the public side if they choose to use it.”
