He also at least was if not still, is a motor cop as well as being part of the SET team, and Tollway motors tend to stay on the tollway so no waiting for cars to show up like you do downstate. High Volume of traffic on roads designed for faster travel than the limit is set, with plenty of crossovers and bridges and toll booths to hide and work laser behind; and the one task of writing speeding tickets all day being on the special enforcement team, I can't say I'm surprised.
This guy is weak, I think I remember reading a story a week or so ago on here about a moto cop in CA that has written like 60,000 in his career.
He should hold hands with the other imbecile who wrote 65,000 tickets. Discretion is part of the job. This is an example of why cops are hated. He is no different than a camera on a pole snapping license plates. Cop is too stupid to realize he is just a replaceable number like every other civil servant. Employer will dump him the first time he does anything wrong. If he makes it to retirement, the bosses will forget who he was 5 minutes after he is out the door.
If you calculate that out it's like 455 a year... less than 2 citations a day (if you consider a 5 day work week over 52 weeks)...for a state trooper PLUS being on a special enforcement team, that really isn't so many tickets. I'm not sure why this made the news.
I know a trooper, and a few officers too who have been writing around 10 citations per shift over the past few years...they even out to around 2,600 a year and it's not the most in the state.
