Dear Yahoo!:
Do police departments have speeding ticket quotas? If so, is a driver more likely to receive a ticket at certain times?

Dear Bob:
Most police departments would say, “Not us. No way do we have quotas.” Our favorite quote comes from the Brockton Police Department in Massachusetts: “No sir, we don’t have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we want.”
