Monday's trivia question was, "The average cost of this is $152, and 110,000 Americans will get one today".


Jake answered the question correctly and ironically, he says he has NEVER even been pulled over. Not only has he never been cited for speeding, but has not even been pulled over! I don't know if I believe him. 😂

On the other hand, I have been cited for speeding probably 5 times, not including "warnings".

The last citation for speeding I received was on Peck's Rd. about ten years ago. I was clocked going 48 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. I remember the officer asking me, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" I should've just apologized and said, "Yes." Maybe I would have got off with a warning?

Even though most know they're guilty when they're stopped for speeding, their ego kicks in and says, "Ya know those cops, gotta meet their quota!"


In actuality, they do not, it's a common misnomer, and it might even be illegal.

Remember the whole Massachusetts State Police overtime scandal involving speeding tickets and alleged quotas?

Here's a statement from a Massachusetts State Police spokesman from March of 2019.

While the department does not comment on ongoing legal proceedings, the Department has no policy or operating procedures that establish quotas and does not endorse a quota system. -David Procopio via

Ticket and citation quotas are illegal in Massachusetts, a Boston-based attorney said, citing a Massachusetts Appeals Court decision and state law.

Although it sucks getting pulled over and cited for speeding, the point is to slow you down and deter aggressive driving, not because law enforcement needs to meet a monthly number.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
