SoCal Police are out in full force

Just a heads up, the Police in LA are writing some serious tickets right now. Since the 1st of the month i know 3 people that have gotten speeding tickets, my girl being 1 of them for 49 in a 40mph zone, today i was pulled over for no front plate and tint, i told the cop i just bought the car it that came like that and i have had no time to sort it out. He let me slide with a warning.

Just keep your head up and slow down they're on a mission right now

Thanks for the tip. I remember back in late July or August there was a similar period where they were out in force and pulling people over left, right, and center. My guess is that there are quarterly quotas for tickets - it's generally viewed as bitch work by most police and thus left to the last minute - hence the almost seasonal nature of the "surge."

But who knows, it could be a budgetary thing.

I know there are a few LEOs on our forum, so Im going to ask. I always hear people talking about the monthly quota, but from what I have read, this does not exist. Is there any proof either way? I dont think there is, I just think sometimes it may be more prevalent like whenever crime rates are down and maybe more are out on traffic control? I dont know. Just wondering...

TL;DR-? for LEO's: Does monthly quota exist?
