Greedy Grabbers 6
Only in Holland. Cops in Rotterdam are obliged to write out a minimum amount of tickets, otherwise they will receive a cut on their salary. (It has even been put in to contract.) The quota is set on 120 tickets per cop. The underlying motivation here is of course money. Holland has a reputation for creating 'milk-cows,' when you have to get a new passport or i.d. card or license plate (etc.), you're in for some financial setbacks because those don't come cheap. In fact, 'milk-cows' are created to generate income for the state and forcing police officers to write out tickets is just another extension of the same philosophy. Sickening, really.
