The police chief in Lodi, N.J., says he has told his officers to ticket his wife on two different occasions -- for double parking and failing to move her car for a street sweeper, The Record reports. He said he didn't want his family to get special treatment.
She got one of those tickets while dropping off their kid at school, so I'm not sure if the missus was quite as understanding.
I've heard about police letting fellow officers or their families out of minor tickets. For any police or former police in the audience, do you ever have situations like this -- where officers insist on being ticketed, so nobody can accuse them of getting special treatment?
