You know, I hear stuff like this about quotas all the time - and the number always seems to be around 10-15. Maybe it's an actual problem somewhere- but I have a 15 minute drive to work and on most days, there are at least 15 tickets that could be written on that commute. A cop working a full shift here shouldn't have any problems writing 15 legit tickets.

Tell me the sergeant wants 100 tickets from each, and I can see where that's an incentive to write bogus tickets. But a quota of 15 tickets a shift in itself doesn't really explain it.
