The majority of the small police department in Slaughter, Louisiana – including the police chief – resigned this week after accusing the mayor of the city of attempting to impose ticket quotas on citizens to increase revenue and turn a profit.
There’s only a couple of nearby towns that I can tell as being quota driven – maybe I should say the PD’s funding is dependent on the amount of tickets written – and that’s Millersville and White House. If the fucking speed limit is 30 mph, you better be doing 28.
I see a lot of tickets being written on Hwy 109 through Portland but I don’t know if it’s because they’re enforcing the law heavily on that road all the time as it does run through residential districts or if the cops are just assholes.
Lafayette? I just drive safely and that turns out to be within 5, maybe 10 mph of the posted limit anyways, but I’ve yet to be ticketed.
