Over the weekend we saw a traffic auntie writing a parking ticket
for a wayward BMW, so we took a couple minutes to pepper her with
- Do you get a bonus for writing more tickets?
No. No bonus. We have to write 30 tickets and then we're done.
- What happens if you don't write 30 tickets?
My pay gets docked 25 SGD. Or if I make a mistake writing a ticket, my pay gets docked again for 25 SGD.
With an incentive structure like that, "30 and done" seems pretty rational.
