Officially, and legally, there is no quota. The standing joke for some of us is, "Five a day keeps the sergeant away." Depending on which shift I'm working, I usually write about seven or eight a day. Bottom line is that I just can't go out and not write tickets. There are days when I don't write any, but they are few and far between.
