Gee, we talk like all the cops everywhere get their marching orders from the same local. Each district, town, city, state etc. has it’s own priorities ( and budget), all of which influence job priorities. That is not to say they are trained differently, but a town with tight budget constraints and few accidents and complaints in a certain area will prioritize. You could very well see less traffic control in these areas. Drive the same way in a like town where complaints are high, and few constraints, you could get pulled over for the same infraction. It has less to do with police training as much as local priorities.
@bing, I don’t know what universe you drive in but, the biggest expense that traffic summons are used to pay for, are court costs in our state. It isn’t like the towns get rich at your expense. It’s more because the location you get picked up in has had a bevy of complains for speeding. It’s the local tax payers that have the final say where law inforcement will take place for your speeding tickets often. It has little to do with generating income in most locals. When local budgets go down, along with federal and state aid to law enforcement ( a big contribution to training) law enforcement goes down, not up.
This is played out all the time in cities with lower tax bases as law enforcement expenses with increased crime does little to justify the police working man hours in these areas for all types of police work . That’s why crime is higher with much less enforcement when budgets are less, not greater.
