police quotas

Honestly, I never really believed in the concept of police quotas where towards the end of the month, if the revenue numbers expected by the municipaliy were not looking good the police would be on the prowl and more likely to give a ticket for traffic violations.

That was, until today.

As I was heading down Ridge Ave and onto Ridge Pike, a street where I have never seen a patrol car during the day, on January 31st I see five. Five patrol cars on a three mile stretch of road. Now, some of you might be like, well perhaps something happened. No, nothing happened. I watched as these patrol cars from Whitemarsh Township would turn around once they reached the Philly boarder and head in the other direction and do the same thing once they go to the other end of the town. I noticed this as I was up and down the road a few times this afternoon.The speed limit is a paltry 35mpg which just begs people to speed on this critical piece of infrastructure.

Guess Whitemarh Township isn’t going to hit its numbers this quarter…
