Vermont law enforcement issued more than 24,000 traffic tickets last year, totaling more than $4 million. And three towns with a combined population of less than 1,900—Bridgewater, Plymouth and Mount Tabor—accounted for a full quarter of those fines. In Bridgewater, most of the tickets were written in a 24-hour 25-mph school zone near a school that closed three years ago.
