WHITEVILLE, NC (AP) — A political feud is putting traffic
offenders in limbo in Bladen, Brunswick and Columbus counties.

District Judge Jerry Jolly ordered traffic court to be shut down
last month after accusing chief prosecutor Jon David of assigning
some offenders to StreetSafe classes in exchange for reduced
charges.

Jolly has been critical of StreetSafe, an educational program to
encourage driver safety,

The prosecutor had asked the North Carolina Court of Appeals to
block Jolly’s order. But the panel said Monday it could not rule on
the request until Jolly responds to it. Jolly has until the end of
next week to submit a response.

David also has asked Jolly to apologize for calling the
StreetSafe program “a scheme.”
