they usually let you pay a higher fine to avoid the points. quotas are taboo but when i was a traffic cop you were expected to right 10 per shift...math
2 shifts=20 per day=2 cops on duty per day=40 per day=280 week.
920 per month. average fine for a ticket was $75. i think i did the math right here, this is only based on a small department with a 2nd and 3rd shift, the chief didn't patrol during the day so no police converage, you can see that cites provide an a**load of money for the village/township. if you didn't right at least 10 per shift the chief would call you at home in the morning an ask you what the hell you were doing all night ? i wrote 26 traffic cites in one 8 hour shift one time, the record was 33 ! i could have wrote more but i actually had to arrest a couple of people. alot of departments are corrupt with the concern on profit and not protection.
sorry aboout the venting...
