    this happens all over the globe... what about the 3rd world countries where the police makes the law as they go... we live in pretty fucked up times but i don't think 2-300$ tickets are even remotely important when it comes to countries from Africa or the Middle East... i'm assuming that in those countries getting a 200$ ticket instead of getting shot/stoned/beaten to death is pretty much desirable...

    "honey i got a 200$ ticket today!"
    "PRAISE ALLAH!"

    It goes by Hierarchy. There must be instructions even from top of the Police head and finally chain may end in Politics.

    Ticket quotas are such bullshit, you get this crap in Europe too.

    I have no time for the police in any part of the world, in the 1st world they're a private political army and in other countries they're no better than a street gang.

    You won't get pulled over for speeding if you don't drive like a maniac. Its not a big issue that some of you people worry about.

    You may not get pulled over for speeding if your driving's fine, but certainly in the UK people get stopped in their cars regularly without having done anything wrong.

    I like to drive 55 to 60mph in a 70mph zone, that's how I never get a ticket.

    They dont have quotas where i live. They just give the guy that issued it 50% and thats all the motivation needed.

    This reminds me of black hat SEO vs White hat for some reason :D . Maybe because its just like links instead of doing it slowly and naturally we want results . Just like the police is doing building up cases and putting everyone in wrong place :D

    I do it because I like getting a higher mpg. But people that choose to go over the speed limit, only have themselves to blame for a ticket. Your only save .984 seconds for every 1 mile you drive 1mph over the speed limit.
