It's about the DOT justifying its existence and people using their position of power to manipulate the system for their own personal gain.
If you were to audit the cost of DOT enforcement vs. the revenue they generate, I am *SURE* you would discover that they operate at a loss. The money they collect from tickets isn't enough to keep the lights on.
What you have, are people addicted to power in fear of losing their cushy high-paying jobs with full pension after 20 years of service. They can easily justify themselves by claiming it's all about safety.
It's not about safety. It's not about a government money grab either, because there is no money to grab.
