Who is paying the city bills? Speeders, who's only incentive is to minimize fines, or wage-earning taxpaying residents, who are interested in the well-being of the city?

Um, both?

Using speeders to pay for a substantial portion of the DC's services to its taxpayers will directly lead to a debasement of those services.

This seems completely specious to me. Maybe you have a compelling argument that this is true, but I don't think you've made it. Having a portion of our revenues generated by scofflaw drivers is as likely to lead to the total breakdown of society as, to use your analogy, calling people up for jury duty every 5 years instead of every 2 years (or 9 months, as the case may be in DC). It's a lot of rhetoric that falls apart on a cursory examination.
