    I think it depends on where you work and what division you're assigned.

      I really don't write moving summonses anymore or any summonses for that matter. I think I have written maybe three tickets for the entire year so far. When I did write tags more regularly (which really weren't that many), my mandatory summons was for a crap attitude. If you were nice, I would cut you a break with a verbal warning, if not, you were getting a summons for the infraction you broke. If you are a real tool I will search up and down for more infractions that you are in violation of and write them. An old timer once said to me "there are more than enough a-holes to fulfill your quota, no need to write someone who is being respectful."

            The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

              When I was on General Duty (Canadian-speak for uniformed Patrol), I was often too busy trying to get from wherever to wherever to conduct interviews, wave the flag, or get back to the office to get reports done, so was not big into writing tickets, but would hunt for, arrest, investigate, and charge impaired (alcohol) drivers.

              After going over to the "Dark Side" (Highway Patrol / Traffic Services), I experienced the indescribable bliss of being able to ignore all non-life-or-death GD calls, and of being able to focus on traffic enforcement (criminal and non-criminal), while also being able to swoop in to back up GD (either mine, or Municipal PS), and make long patrols and work projects. My initial focus on HP was speed (120%+ of the limit and pass-stopped-emergency-vehicle-with-emergency-lights-engaged-at-greater-than-60kph).

              After my Unit became TS, we had to review GD collision files to be sure causal factors were being properly recorded (i.e.: "Road Condition"? Nope - "Speed Too Fast For Road Conditions") for proper statistics and base-line factors, then we concentrated on Impaired, Occupant Restraint, Intersection Control, Aggressive / Other High-Risk (Criminal Prohibited / Non-Criminal Disqualified - Suspended or Unlicenced Drivers, Unregistered / Uninsured Vehicles, Driver Illegal Use of Electronic Communication Device, Lane Discipline, Illegal Use / Possession of Liquor in Vehicle), Unsafe Speed (my tolerance was 130%+ of the limit) and Criminal Interdiction (Post-Arrest or Sentencing Release Conditions, Outstanding Warrants, Property Obtained by Crime).

              General Units get stuck with every call, while Specialists stick to their areas - General Investigation / Major Crimes / Detectives, Scenes of Crimes / Crime Scene Investigation / Forensic Identification, Court Liaison, Drugs, Commercial Crime.

                    Most DWIs, texting, and Bernie Sanders bumper stickers (they usually don't have insurance anyway).

                      Add Hillary, Obama, and Democrat stickers to that list, too!
