A WTSP-Channel 10 reporter has won a prestigious journalism award for an investigation last year that revealed how state and local officials had cost Florida drivers millions of dollars in extra fines by reducing yellow-light times.
WTSP was the only TV station in the country to win a George Polk Award, according to the station.
"The award is a tremendous honor," the recipient, Noah Pransky, said in a press release. "We take a lot of pride in serving as the public's watchdog."
The reporting included more than 40 stories and helped prompt officials to lengthen yellow lights. Others involved with the project were Amy Marinec, Paul Thorson and Melissa Rancourt.
