Anything that is within city limits is pretty much a do whatever you want zone. As long as you don't kill someone you have nothing to worry about. I'm a cyclist, so in some ways I have mixed feelings about it when I'm riding on the road... but when in a car, it's a system that works quite well for the poor design of our congested city.

On many roads traffic flows at double the limit and the police will overtake you in the left lane going even faster. We also have a left on red turn known as the "Pittsburgh left" that is commonplace. Passing city busses or slow traffic on a double yellow is nearly a daily thing.

We have strange (but kind of awesome) radar laws that only allow the state police to use Laser or KA for speed enforcement. The local municipalities and county police must use VASCAR. I hear cars bang off of rev limiter on the street my business is on nearly daily.

Only time I've ever been pulled over in the city was on a four lane to four lane road, taking a right turn from the left lane, apexing the inside corner, and tracking out to the left lane on exit. It was about 1/4 of a mile from my business so I pulled in to the shop with two cops behind me. They thought maybe the car was stolen... verified everything was okay and let me be on my way. "Keep that on the race track," or something like that was the advice given.

I like to think the police spend their time working on things that really matter.
