The Campaign For DA


DPS Just Did Some Major Wealth Redistribution On You

Announced today: Over an 18 day period ending on Labor Day weekend, DPS Troopers issued "about 24,440 speeding citations" in Texas. That's over 56 an hour 24 hours day for 18 days. And that staggering number doesn't include any non-speeding traffic violations.  (I can't find any stats for how many people tickets were written via DPS's four $558,000 gun boats that are supposed to patrol the Rio Grande.)

I'd like to see the number when you add in local police departments and local sheriff's offices across the State.
