I run 5 MPH over the limit. If traffic is heavy and really rolling I run with the flow just to keep from becoming roadkill.
Nothing will spoil a day, trip or a tight budget more then an avoidable visit with the law.

He is the first one I have ever heard admit there was a quota.

Do what ever you want to do, but get off my fender. He acted shocked and drove away. Not that I would recommend this, but I had severe anger issues at the time.

There's no "official" written quota. That's illegal. However, it's tough to go on shift for 8 hours and not witness at least 2-3 people speeding.


So...you have officers that will run around like crazy people (We call them "Hammers") and write tickets all day, and others who realize that they get the same pay, for sitting in their car, and doing the minimum.

Some cops LIKE writing tickets.

So.....a department may say that YOUR JOB is to write traffic tickets, and expect to see XYZ tickets a month, but it's not mandated. Unless you have a bunch of other arrests and citations to explain why there's few traffic citations handed in, you have to have SOMETHING to justify 8 hours a day in uniform.

It's not something in writing but you DO have a job to do and you're expected to do it.

There may not be a quota, but I imagine some still have personal goals. A buddy of mine is a State Trooper. He says he hates to stop someone for 10mph over. He said he knows while he's dealing with that, someone is going to come by a lot faster. He drives a challenger full of electronic gadgets, radar, radio, computer, printer, etc.. He said he would trade all that stuff for a simple cup holder.

Performance goals. Yes.

You're expected to do our job.

I haven't been stopped for anything in 25yrs. or so. If I were to get a ticket tomorrow, I could not blame anyone but me. When I was 16yrs. old, I got a ticket from a trooper. When I went to court I found out he had written 427 tickets that month. Talk about doing your job! That man was on it.

We called our quota an "Efficiency Index".

I'm not reckless, but have been pulled over a few times, one thing I do is always tell the officer the truth. Of the times I"ve been pulled over, I've been ticketed twice, both deserved. Some are just going to write you and thats that, its their job, nothing personal.
