There are lots of police on 64 between Glenside and Belvedere - 6-7 pulling people over. Is it ticket day? Is something else going on?

In 2022 virginia supposedly banned formal ticket quotas. But I'm sure informally it's still going on. The state claimed quotas didn't exist in response to an email from from State police supervisors leaking that instructed cops to write more tickets if they wanted to retain their positions - that wasn't a QUOTA, it was just instructions. Laughable

An actual quote from an ex-roommate who worked for VSP:

"We don't have quotas. Just a certain number of tickets we have to write per month."

When I pointed out that was pretty much the definition of a quota, he just looked at me like he couldn't process words.

Guarantee that crayon eater had literally no clue what the word quota meant

Virginia banned Ticket Quotas(which we totally never ever did in the first place no way), now they have a completely different system in where Officers have a minimum amount of tickets they must issue over the course of a month.

I used my reverse auto correct and it concluded that you did indeed mean to type air fryer.

Quota could be a hundred thousand tickets and they wouldn't have a difficult time surpassing even that.

They were out in larger-than-usual numbers all the way down to Newport News this morning and again this evening. End of the month!
