Do Police Have A Quota For Traffic Tickets?

Police do not usually publish the fact that they have quotas for traffic tickets, but traffic ticket, traffic ticket revenues is a huge source especially for many small parishes around New Orleans.

There’s been many articles across the country and across the state about police officers that are getting punished for not writing enough traffic tickets, but when you imagine that each of these tickets are an average of $250-$400 writing a few of those certainly pays for them, pays for their cars, and a lot of that money is used by the city, I think with camera tickets, which we don’t do, that are not actually moving violations in Louisiana, I believe the city of New Orleans last year made 18 plus million dollars on that so it is something that it is a significant revenue generator for municipalities.

I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful.
