Usually when I make a traffic stop I'm doing so with the intentions of taking that person to jail. I don't make many stops (3-4 a day) and write very few tickets. I choose wisely on my stops (sitting on a drug house, observing dwi like vehicle motions, etc). The only ticket I really care to write if I'm going to do so is no insurance. It really frustrates me with someone is texting on their fancy iPhone or galaxy but can't provide insurance. Not to mention if you hit me w/o it then I have to pay the deductible and take the higher rate hit.
I observed this exact same activity a few nights ago with a 73 dart. Pulled the guy over, gave him a hard time, then told him to have a good night and sent him on his way with a warning. Like it's been said above I also get no incentive for writing tickets I do it cause I like getting my hands dirty and it passes the time while I'm working.
