Our South Florida traffic attorneys recently read about a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) trooper with a 12 year history of service who says he was terminated for not writing enough traffic tickets. According to Bay News 9, former trooper Chris Maul left for six months and was put on a routine probation period when he returned.
In May, Maul made 44 arrests, including four for DUI. Despite getting a positive review during his quarterly evaluation, Maul was later told that d his level of activity wasn’t going cut it. He was terminated in June.
Florida statutes prohibit the FHP from setting up a quota system for citations. Bay News 9’s calls to the Florida Highway Patrol were not returned.
