Mr. Herman and the judge who let a drunk driver slide need to go for a ride-a-long and see how easy it is to justifiably stop motorists. There is no need for alleged quotas. As a retired Baltimore City police officer, I can honestly say that I could have written multiple tickets and vehicle repair orders daily till the cows came home. However, if I did that I couldn't handle calls for service, back up officers, or be readily available for other assignments. My supervisor would have made a point about "discretionary" enforcement of the traffic laws, and understandably so. But I realized that, and so worst case offenders got pulled over for a ticket or a driver safety lecture.
