Are Traffic Tickets More Expensive Due to High Gas Prices?

I got a traffic ticket today. I was late for a meeting, two roads were closed, I was driving 49 in a 35 and I was guilty.  We’ve all been there.  Its been nearly 5 years since my last ticket and I forgot how much I paid on the previous fine.  This ticket doesn’t have the amount I owe, the policeman was nice, quick, and told me I would get a bill in the mail.  I drove off thinking that was odd.  Why not list the amount I owe on the ticket?  Something like 0-5 miles over the speed limit, pay a certain amount.  10 miles over the limit, double that, and so forth.  Seems logical.  Instead, I won’t know my fine until next week.  Is this because traffic fines change often?

High fuel prices are causing Americans to drive less, thus buying less fuel and lowering the amount of fuel taxes the government collects.  To make up for this difference, maybe local governments are increasing fines on speeding tickets and have stopped putting fine amounts on the ticket.  I don’t know but I really don’t see anything wrong with this.  Everyone is finding creative ways to make up in lost revenue brought about by high fuel prices.  Hopefully the city is trying to find ways to save money in addition to just increasing their collections. 

What are some of the ways you have saved money or justified charging more (besides filing your taxes with IFTA Plus)?
