Cop gives himself a $235 ticket and four points

None of us like getting tickets and avoid it at all costs by either taking an upcoming exit or speeding away as soon as we see a cop before he comes out of his little cubby hole to catch us. But have you ever wondered who tickets the cops for driving violations? And if they get pulled over do they just get off the hook because they are on the police force?

Well cops like Chief Dick Knoebel are probably the most stubborn yet honest cops out there. Chief Dick Knoebel gave himself a $235 ticket giving him four points on his driving record for passing a school bus with its stop lights flashing. While most might consider this stupid, Knoebel has been getting e-mails from all over the world congratulating him on his honesty and has even received offers for paying his ticket, which he turned down.

“Police officers do good things everyday, and that doesn’t get reported,” said Knoebel, who has been chief for 20 years in this town northwest of Milwaukee. “All you hear about in the news is when a police officer is in trouble.”

Good job, Knoebel, wish there were more like you out there.
