So, for NOT be thoughtful and turning on the signal, it's cost ya over $160.00

And if you pass a cop while he was on the side of the road and out of his car/ has someone else pulled over & don't move over to another lane/ give wide berth...and slow down when going by them - that could cost you  well over $300. 00 with court costs..

----- a move over law in place which requires motorists to maintain a safe distance and reduce speed when approaching stationary emergency vehicles that are alongside the road with their lights flashing. If a lane change is impossible because of road or traffic conditions, a motorist must slow down and be prepared to stop, if needed, to prevent collisions. ...// Failure to obey the "Move-Over Law" is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $250. If the violation results in property damage to the emergency vehicle, highway maintenance or recovery vehicle or bodily injury to the driver or passenger, the fine can be increased up to $1,000.

So yes, people are being TAUGHT TO "Be Courteous" by paying OUT money, who would've thought??  Betty

The problem is, America is NOT a Democracy - it is a Republic! As our Founding Fathers established, can we keep it?
