You should not communicate informally with the police and other services

The States have strict regulations on the interaction of ordinary people and representatives of any services. In post-Soviet countries, it is useful to have your own person in the police, fire and medical services, as well as in all kinds of inspections. In America, this is not encouraged, and sometimes it can be very severely punished. Of course, we are talking about attempts to “kick in” the same policeman. So you should communicate with these people politely and formally.

You can't "smoke" on the street

Of course, the well-known addiction is now actively fought everywhere, including the post-Soviet countries. In the past few years, laws have become much stricter, but compared to what is happening in the States, these are still flowers.

Taking the Los Angeles County example: it’s a good idea to get a fine if you don’t know the rules in each specific city. And since different cities are located here literally across the road from each other, it is better not to take risks and not walk the streets with a cigarette.

Moreover, smoking, if we talk about the same California, is even condemned here in society, especially in wealthy San Francisco. And in general, adherents of this addiction with the price of a pack of $ 5-10 can spend a lot like that.

No "pirates"

All of us, to be honest, are accustomed to downloading something on torrents. In the States, you can actually get a fine for this.

How will they know? Yes, everything is simple - the provider (the one whose Internet you use) will see if you download or share something from a torrent. For the first time, a warning letter will be sent. Well, if you continue to download, then the Internet will simply be cut off without the possibility of recovery. And they can also send a fine, and a considerable one.
