I would not jump to that conclusion. Issuing tickets for minor traffic 
violations is nothing more than a tax and the police officers become 
nothing more than tax collectors. Many small cities and villages get 
substantial revenues from traffic violations. Their budgets would 
collapse without the massive issuance of traffic tickets.

Hence, now that many governments have severe budget problems, they are 
are looking for revenue everywhere they can get it. They are pushing the 
police to issue more tickets. So beware, even minor petty traffic 
"violators" are now getting taxed....I mean ticketed...to help the 
government's strained budgets.
