I'm sure you're right about the new pattern of issuing warnings , but I still think that , somewhere in the VSP chain of command or above that
( possibly maybe a Federal decision ), a directive was issued to the Trooper , or to his Superior , to utilize the warning protocol rather then issue the ticket , probably a PC action . I'm guessing that it might not be fair , but probably practical. Wonder what a VSP Trooper does with the next driver speeding at 88 mph on I-89 ???

A warning for doing 20mph over the speed limit? Are you kidding me? When you discipline children, you need consistency for the punishment to teach the child not to do the action again. Why would you only sometimes give a ticket and expect the enforcement of the rules to work?  And why wouldn't everybody get the same enforcement of the rules. 
If it was a case of always a warning for a first-time offense, okay but it needs to be enforced that way for everyone, not just when the officer feels like giving this person a break and ticketing the next one.
We have rules/laws for a reason and the key to teaching people to follow those rules is the same as for a child -- CONSISTENT enforcement.

No idea.  If it were ME speeding, I'm sure I'd get a ticket... :)

Trevor,

     Didn't you get a very expensive hamburger one time with regards to a ticket?

Henry                                 Today's on-line BFP has a continuing story on the " The Traffic Stop " and the factors taking place in the decision
making process as a result of that stop. It certainly looks to me like VSP Trooper Hatch did his job the correct way,  which is not surprising but , given the pressures that were exerted that day on I-89 , knowing what he knew about the possibilities of litigation, very commendable .
I don't know how to link this BFP article up to the forum , but perhaps you or someone else could do that .
