Yes, and I bet it will get worse as the economy gets worse and local government needs to generate more cash.

To add to my last statement, Doesn't the police have BETTER things to do than ticket people from talking on their cell phones while driving???

Yes, what a novel idea... "stop an aggrivated assault or something" I bet aggrivated assaults don't pay enough, probably the people driving mercedes and chatting away on their cell phones will pay the $120 ticket... some welfare recipient crazy beating on their spouse probably wont cough up any money for their arrest or subsiquent jail time.
