    Killeen police handed out a bunch of traffic tickets Wednesday in an area that has become a trouble spot.
    Officers conducted a special operation targeting drivers who didn't yield right of way.
    Some drivers say this off ramp on Highway 190 is dangerous and dozens of complaints prompted the police department to find those drivers who don't yield.

    It is a common sight around Killeen. Drivers traveling along the Central Texas Expressway who simply do not yield to traffic coming off Highway 190 at about 60 miles per hour.

    "Weíve had a number of complaints to this particular problem, so we are responding to those complaints." Lieutenant Michael Clark with the Killeen Police Department said.

    The Killeen Police Department set up a special operation near the Stan Schlueter intersection. "Itís always been a problem, its real congested around those areas." Maria Brock-Jones said.

    The eyes of the law kept watch from a parking lot and when they spotted someone failing to follow the law hey flashed their lights, pulled them over and issued them a ticket. Failing to yield to the right of way is a Class C misdemeanor which carries a fine of up to $500.

    "Itís preventative to accidents, if you don't do that, its a contributing factor, not a lot, but a percentage of accidents on an annual basis." Clark said.

    The police department hopes the focus on finding drivers who fail to yield will help ease the merging problems around town. "Iím the one who violates it most of the time, so I don't want a ticket. But I know itís good.Ē Brock-Jones said.

    The police department said the operation was successful Wednesday but NBC 6 News won't know just how many tickets they issued until Thursday.
