Most of us, if not all of us, hear traffic stops I'm sure.

In NJ, AFAIK, only State Police have to give reason for stop(4-98, ie, is speeding). They'll call that out right away. "Moving, 4-98." Then the stop.

Locals don't have to. At least they don't. I'll hear 10-50(stop) and the plate #.

At the end, 10-8(clear from stop, in service) and EITHER ticket issues(1, 2, etc issues), or warning.

Since I've been listening, and at least for my local area, there are AN AWFUL lot of breaks. Interesting I suppose.

What about out by you guys?

I know for a fact, a long time ago when I was going to be a NYS Trooper, the preliminary exam class I went to, they stated that if a Trooper comes out after you, you're getting a ticket not matter what.

Locals on the other hand are different.

Thats by my experience

100%
Staties are souless ticket dispensing machines who take pride on never cutting breaks

Ive been pulled on about 15 separate traffic violations over the years

Ive never been issued a warning
Ever
And thats with pulling keys
Shutting the radio and vehicle off
Opening all windows
Yes sir/no sir

Better then half i was not cut a break because since day 1 at 16 years old i knew the law and that they werent my friend

Most of those breaks you speak of is when the driver admits guilt roadside making fighting the ticket absolutely impossible if you admited it to the officer

In most situations the officer still writes you for speeding just one or two brackets down

But if you fight the ticket you can be sure theyll tell the presiding judge and states attorney that you admitted the violation

Im diplomatic and extremely respectful yet during traffic stops they try to question me over and over

I simply say im not sure
They dont like that
They want you to fear their presence or buy their story theyll let you off if you admit guilt

Ive seen several times a local play possum say hes not going to write somebody else up and then he does

If you politely stand up for your rights youll never get a break
At least in my almost 20 years experience

Yeah, the only time I got tickets was when i was speeding. Flat out pulled me over, gave me the speech and requested my information. Came back and there it was.a ticket. Locals-nothing. I was pulled over recently for tints (guys were undercover and unmarked), he was really appreciative that I put the keys on the dash as he walked up. Didn't give me a ticket but having two other guys with their hands on their weapons even with my windows rolled down made me uneasy. Anyway, he was really cool about it and let me go.

Another time, on my way to drop off my boy, got pulled over saying I didn't stop at a stop sign when I clearly did. When I rolled down my windows, he saw my boy sleeping. Just questioned me and let me go. Another local guy.

Highway..forget it.

They almost always cite in my area. Maybe it's because it's predominately black neighborhood or the people they pull over are especially rude. I know at my local bar it's pretty obvious the black folk do not know how to behave during a traffic stop. Like it's the officers job NOT to shoot them. I'm not a black dude but I'm pretty sure if I was I could manage a traffic stop without getting shot or beaten up. Even Larry our resident right wing black man agrees with that.

Every now and then I'll hear on the scanner a summary of trooper operations in whatever state I happen to be in. I recall a couple/few times in the past couple years where they've given 9 - 10 written cautions and twice that number in citations.

So troopers DO give them out some places.

But I suspect they are for speeding low speeds or other miscellaneous crap.

I personally received a written warning from an AR state trooper for +13 in a 55 back around 2007 (running a V1), which was a real nice surprise.

Got two tickets without ANY breaks from AR troopers for +24 and +20ish (running V1 both times).

In Missouri I got a ticket for +18 (again using a V1 - good grief!), female trooper told me she could write me up for the +22 she saw on screen initially but she said she cut me break.

In my 5+ years of driving I have had 2 warnings issued for speeding and a BS ticket for equipment violation. I would say I have been pretty lucky and always super respectful to the officer. I never have a reason to hate them if they are just doing their job correctly and even less if they give me a break.

Both times I was puller over by a trooper.

Being my one ticket was from a county(actually brought it down from 20, to 15 over in a 55, and the one before that being local, I guess it’s just my luck.


But, on the highway I try to play it safer.

Have gotten NUMEROUS warnings(for all different things, license plate, speeding, etc). All from locals.

When I had no job or career, that was a good bet. $55K for doing pushups in the academy and then $75K when you come out is pretty good if you ask me no matter what needs to be done. Putting bread on the table is what matters.
I'm too old now anyway and gave up my spot YEARS ago.
