    It is illegal for police to strike in Quebec so during contract negociations they do all sorts of pressure tactics. Not giving out tickets is one of them. Are the police in your area in negociations?

    This happens all the time when I stop people. I don't usually give it a second thought, especially when you have the people who have 9-10 insurance cards that date back over the last 5 years, stockpiled in the glovebox. It's better than not having one.

    As far as ticket writing goes, Im not a very big fan of it, you REALLY have to earn one for me to write one out, but then again, not everyone thinks like I do.

    Me too, although never for 54 in a 65 (more like 35 in a 65). Must have been some unusual circumstance involved, perhaps with some other vehicle/safety infractions tossed in.

    I live in New Jersey and work in New York. Our car pool makes it a game to count the cops on the road between home and work. The average, when we started the game 4 months agao, was 3-5, but in the past month, that number has jumped to 8. Just this Sunday we counted 12, and 9 had people pulled over. Heck, one of the other car pools from my town (we have three carpool loads) got pulled over- for driving too slow (54 in a 65). I didn't even know you could get cited for that.
