Can I bring a box of donuts to the police when resolving a fix-it citation?

Got it fixed and was going to have the police sign off on it. Was going to bring a box of donuts as a sign of appreciation, but it could be interpreted as something but that.
    just spit coffee all over my computer...

        Went to the station. BTW, the office that signs off citations is not open on the weekend. So my wife got a box of donuts... for ourselves. I've had 3 already. Wasn't planning on doing a long bike ride this past weekend, but because of the donut fat bomb incursion, I went ahead and did a PCH excursion through the rain.

          How much of a hassle was it to take care of the fix it ticket? Online traffic school takes like 30-60 minutes, then the violation never goes on your record.

            Yeah, the fix was a hassle to make the car street legal. That’s a separate issue from the U turn.
            I don’t agree with all laws, but in general results tend to be better.

              Driving violation (Illegal U turn is not some small violation) on a Tesla and no fine is given.
              Then we think of giving police donuts for this?

              Honestly I think we in rich zipcodes forget how to live regularly (you got away without getting a fine, be happy with it, no need to reward police).

              So much hate for getting away with a violation instead of a ticket!!!

              I always used to hang my white coat on the rear passenger seat hanger. With the hospital badge prominently displayed. In my earlier times I was stopped for minor speeding violations and always was let go with a warning to be careful. My only ticket was in NJ many, many moons ago ( hop I don't jinx that streak).

              Yes, I would like to show my appreciation for the police.

                I treat a lot of firemen and police. Those are the only two groups of patients that I will go out of my way to administer VIP care. I figure if a professional athletes can go to the front of the line for MRIs and specialists, so can these two groups.

                  Great opportunity for more donuts. One for the officers and one for inspiration on your next ride.

                    How about some burritos???

                    I have thus far talked my way out of every ticket except for the time I did not notice the cop along side of me driving down the highway staring at me while I was talking on my phone. This was right after the law was passed and hands free was a hassle. Lucky that was just a $75 fine.

                    Now that I have kids I do not speed much or do anything else that would attract attention.

                      Big cities and suburbs are a little different. They have “campaigns”. The goal is typically a response to some complaints. Speeding, stickers, stop signs etc. Number of tickets is a productivity metric.
                      Quoted for publicity’s sake. Talking falls on deaf ears. I got a ticket once and the officer kindly advised me to seek legal advice or simply show up and plead not guilty. That sucker was sitting on the front row. Never stood up and the case was dismissed for lack of evidence.
                      The screaming kid in the backseat convinced him I was driving safely even though over the speed limit. Once they stop someone in campaigns, monitored for tickets.

                        I prefer to prioritize medical care based on medical necessity rather than patient vocation.

                          Do you practice in the USA or in sub Saharan Africa? I assume you accept insurance also right?

                            Relevance? Are you trying to create a straw man argument? Because everything is not completely equitable that any imbalance is justified?

                            As I stated initially, this is my preference. Obviously reality sometimes interferes but I do not go out of my way to provide better or more prompt care for one class of patients. Of course others are free to do as they see fit.
