The Stamford Advocate reports that about 40 complaints have been recorded since the "How's My Driving?" program started three years ago. People have reported public workers talking on cellphones while driving, knocking over mailboxes and flashing middle fingers. City cars have bumper stickers that encourage people to use the city website to share complaints.
Stamford Risk Manager Ann Marie Mones says the program isn't designed to result in disciplinary action because complaints are almost impossible to verify. Instead, the city uses the complaints to focus its training of city employees.
The city's human resources department says there have been three or four suspensions resulting from the most serious complaints.
