Pa. police gave 650 erroneous traffic tickets


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

PITTSBURGH — Everybody makes mistakes, but when the Police Bureau makes 650 of them in six months, it creates a lot of problems.

Some Pittsburgh police officers who were supposed to be testing new speed detectors relied solely on information from the devices to cite motorists for breaking the law, and that meant at least 650 tickets were issued in error.
