  1. sounds like this concerns driving. It should be the case that the officer should have discretion, when issuing a ticket, to reduce the points to 0 and reduce the fine to 0 or near 0. It is not sufficient that their discretion ends at whether to issue a ticket or not. Furthermore, who decided on this automated ticket system? When we had hand- written tickets & the officer had a compelling reason, after going back to the vehicle, the officer could rip the ticket up & change their mind about issuing it. Now, once its printed, its issued & the officer has lost discretion about changing their mind. Don’t lawmakers support officer discretion? No, when you call the police after the points have disappeared. It may not be the officers fault (does that mean they shouldn’t be blamed) because they have a few minutes sitting on the side- of- the- road to decide if they’re going to give you 2 years worth of points & what can I say? 2 minutes does not = 2 years. The officers should err on the side of caution if they’re not sure & just not issue the ticket if they’re not convinced, in 4 to 5 minutes, that it should be issued. If you call & say I want to tell the officer I didn’t need the ticket that was issued 2 years ago, they will not send an officer out for that reason to receive the feedback, which means that that messages has to be given to the officer some other time. Do the police disagree that an officer shouldn’t receive feedback about excessive tickets? Yes, officers should be told about excessive tickets they’ ve issued, judges should be told about excessive sentences they’ve given.
