Update: Philadelphia Traffic Court judges accused of fixing tickets

Two weeks ago, we discussed how federal prosecutors had filed a multitude of criminal charges against nine sitting and former judges of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, alleging that these officials engaged in an intricate scheme to fix or reduce traffic violations for business, social or political associates. According to the 77-count indictment, the judges allegedly threw out tickets for such offenses as speeding and/or turned these tickets into lesser offenses from July 2008 through September of 2011. In other cases, the judges are accused of finding certain defendants not guilty despite the existence of incontrovertible evidence or granting them continuances of trial dates such that they could "judge shop."

Philadelphia Traffic Court judges accused of fixing tickets

Federal prosecutors recently filed fraud charges against nine current and former judges of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, alleging that these officials reduced traffic violations for several well-connected drivers.

Prosecutors are alleging that they threw out tickets for such offenses as speeding and/or turned these tickets into lesser offenses.

City labor panel rules in favor of NYPD's restrictions on Traffic Enforcement Agents

Have there been fewer parking tickets in lower Manhattan lately?

When you hear the expression "too good to be true," chances are the last thing to pop into your head is the parking here in New York City -- particularly in lower Manhattan.

Police officer gives motorist a welcome surprise inside traffic ticket

When a 25-year-old Texas man was recently pulled over by a police officer for a routine traffic violation, he got much more than he bargained for -- but in a good way. It all started when the police officer pulled Hayden C. over for an expired registration sticker. When asked by the police officer why his registration had expired, Hayden C. simply said he had no excuse. "I said 'there's no explanation for why I haven't done it, except I don't have the money,' Hayden C. recently told a local television station. "I said 'it was either feed my kids or get my registration done.'"

Highway safety director with history of traffic violations loses job

You might not be shocked to learn that directors of states' Highway Safety Divisions have a traffic violation or two on their records. But how about 34 entries?
