Letter: Drivers can avoid tickets by obeying the traffic laws

Drivers can avoid tickets by obeying the traffic laws

In response to Rod Watson’s commentary in The News on Feb. 11 about ticket bias in the city: The Buffalo police officers are not targeting anyone – black or white; they are just doing their job. Just like arresting people, traffic patrol is part of a police officer’s job.

What Watson fails to mention is that every time an officer pulls a car over, his chances of being shot and killed or wounded go up. Facts are out there that prove that. If you are not breaking the law, you won’t get pulled over.
