There are states where very strictly monitor exceeding the speed limit (especially if you have license plates from another state), if you are stopped and fined there, then you will be required to go to that town again for a court hearing, where you will appear and you can even “win back” your fine of $50-200 back, but it’s easier just admit your guilt and pay.

In connecticut you must not leave the car running more than 3 minutes, if you are not in the process of driving, otherwise you will be fined.

You can't pick up the phonewhen the engine is running, otherwise there is a penalty.

On school buses there are cameras and opening signs STOP. When such a bus stops and lets children off, it opens a STOP sign on the side and you must stop, even if you are driving on the opposite side (if there is no road divider). Simultaneously with the “opening” of the sign, the cameras turn on: if you do not stop, you will be found and charged with a large fine.

If you are caught in a state of alcoholic or drug intoxication, then you have to pay for police time, which they will spend on the scene, for a tow truck, a bunch of other things and even for the time spent in prison (about $ 9 per day).

If you have hosted a party of incredible proportions, and one of the guests drank too much, got behind the wheel and hit someone, then you will be responsible for these consequences to one degree or another. That is why a situation is quite possible here in which your keys will be taken away at the bar if you get seriously drunk... When the person who got drunk in your house is still underage (besides hitting someone), then most likely you will sit down.
