Ticket Quotas Are Illegal Under State Law

Ticket Quotas Are Illegal Under State Law - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

You get nabbed for speeding a block from your house and it’s the end of the month. Are you the victim of an officer just trying to fill his quota? Ticket quotas are illegal under state law, since they can pressure police to write unjust tickets to meet the goal, however it can be hard to prove the officer was just filling a quota if you really were breaking the law by driving over the speed limit or rolling that stop sign. 

Ticket quotas are illegal under state law and in 2011, the LA Times reported that ten Los Angeles motor officers sued the city alleging that their supervisors retaliated against them for resisting traffic-ticket quotas. Among their allegations is that LAPD supervisors punished them for refusing to follow orders to implement traffic ticket quotas. The officers testified they were ordered to scrap regular patrol assignments and sent instead to specific streets where they were more likely to catch motorists committing moving violations. Though not illegal, being sent to those so-called "orchards" or "cherry patches," they said, reinforced the belief that hitting ticket targets trumped other aspects of the job.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
