Where's all the money go?

I noticed something the other day as I sat in traffic court, I was supposed to be there at 8:30, only to be told that everyone would be seen in alphabetical order. That meant I wouldn't be seen till well after lunchbreak around 2:30 in the afternoon.  So I was forced to sit there. And I listened. I heard person after person just get fine after fine after fine, so I extrapolated what I had heard so far and added up on my calculator what I heard for the rest of the day, an average of $450.00 a person for the day and a grand total of $279,000.00 for the days total take. This happens 5 days a week, which, being liberal is well over a million dollars a week.  Now I'm no math major but if this is typical for every week in the year, then, again, being liberal, is well over 50 million a year.  Am I the only one who sees this, why are there hungry citizens, why are there homeless people, fines aren't allocated for any particular government agency, some few are getting pretty rich.
