Plus, ticketing for these offenses in higher volume should net them more $ if they need to combat budget deficits. When the US initiated a nationwide 55mph maximum speed rule to combat the oil embargo in the 70's and later repealed it (due to much controversy and opposition), the only major findings was the # of traffic tickets declined.

If I was a cop, I could ticket so many people, and speeding is only a minor fraction of the infractions I witness every time I'm on the road here.
Sounds like you've got a plan. Go for it! I hear CHP is Always hiring as well as PD's.
