Brooklyn drivers aren't the only ones complaining about traffic tickets
Many police officers in the 75th precinct claim they end up paying the price for failing to meet ticket quotas.
A city arbitrator says the New York City Police Department violated the state?s labor law by establishing a ticket quota for traffic violations and then penalizing officers who failed to meet them. The finding comes in response to a grievance filed by the police officers' union in 2004.
The NYPD has been ordered to cease and desist from maintaining a vehicular ticket quota. The arbitrator has also ruled the department must revise performance evaluations of any officer who received low marks for failing to meet the quota.
