Default Police Ticket Quota?

In Texas it's against the law for a Police Department to have a ticket quota. Well I guess someone forgot to inform this officer.

Quotas are illegal in California.

But... having a law eliminating quotas doesn't necessarily eliminate them. I read an article a while back that talks ways police in Pennsylvania put quotas in place, even though they were illegal.

Quote:
They say superiors have told them to write more tickets to maintain "station averages," and contend that is tantamount to an illegal quota system.

Troopers who don't keep up are getting unsatisfactory job evaluations, being placed on probation or being removed from their regular shifts, according to a pair of anonymous "public announcements" that have been distributed to state and turnpike officials.

Guys,

I have found this valuable resource which is closely related to this issue:

State Laws Regarding Speed Traps

I am in the process of recruiting authoritative sources on this particular subject so that we members may be the beneficiaries of an informed position on this matter.
