Traffic Cops Reveal How They Decide Who Gets a Ticket Or A Warning
Traffic Cops Reveal How They Decide Who Gets a Ticket Or A Warning

But you might wonder sometimes how they do it. It seems like there is no rhyme or reason to who gets a traffic ticket, for example.

Well, suvdrummer is out to solve that mystery:

Traffic Cops of Reddit, how do you decide who gets a warning and who gets a ticket?

Here are some anecdotal secrets.

The Old Daughter Trick
The Old Daughter Trick

Four years ago, my two daughters in the backseat. Oldest daughter is three. Sirens behind me. I pull over.

Daughter: Why did you stop? Me: The police pulled me over. Daughter: Why? Me: Because they have laws for driving on the road, and I broke one. (Silence until the officer approaches. I roll down my window.) Daughter (the dam breaks, tears flow like a waterfall): DONT TAKE DADDY TO JAIL! I LOVE HIM!

I got a warning.

I only pull over people for pretty unreasonable crap, so it's mostly a ticket.

It's not really contingent on my treatment. Being super charming is not a free pass. Why should it be?

Teenagers notwithstanding. They usually can't fake things very well. If they are nice, I take it was genuinely nice and I take that into consideration.

Don't Sass Me

I once got pulled over for having an "obstructed view". As the officer was telling me why I got pulled over I said, "Obstructed view? What do you mean? I saw you didn't I?"

Yeah, that was a ticket. First one.
