April 2, 1996

Opinion asking if the Municipal Police Department may be directed not to give summons against motorists who are exceeding the posted speed limit when the policeman who observes such an offense has his police vehicle in a stopped or parked position. Also, may the Police Department be directed to only issue summons for speeding violations from a marked police vehicle as opposed to an unmarked police vehicle, and may the Police Department be ordered not to issue summons after a certain amount of revenue has been reached from the issuance of summons or traffic violations?

Requested by: The Honorable Julian L. Kelly, Mayor, Town of Pawley’s Island
