    speeding isn't the only problem.  The police started giving tickets to people who pulled into the center turn lane when turning left and then waited to merge into traffic when it cleared.  I was visiting my brother when he did that and told him that was against the law in our town. He had never heard of such a thing.  He has been a police officer for decades.  One lady was pulled over in a speed trap area.  She was driving the speed limit so the officer gave her a ticket for "impeding traffic".  The poorest people really have no means to defend against this kind of abuse so they end up paying the ticket or accumulating more and more fines for not paying the ticket.
