Everybody knows that sinking feeling when you see the police lights behind your car and you just know it's you that the officer is pulling over. Drivers get pulled over all the time and for many different reasons but different areas and locations may impact a driver's chances of getting a ticket for a traffic violation.
Certain towns in North Carolina hand out substantially more tickets. In the Town of Burgaw, during 2012 officers wrote almost 1,500 traffic tickets. The town only has 3,800 residents. That's more than 1 ticket for every three people. Compare those numbers to towns like Bolton and Navassa whose police departments didn't issue any traffic citations in 2012.
