Be careful with your assumptions
about what "failure to yield" means and how it's applied. I was in a situation where, due to a blind turn, road/shoulder conditions, speed limit, and plain old timing of the event, an ambulance hit a stopped car that WAS yielding to it. It's difficult to describe in a comment how it all went down, but long story short, the driver was convicted of failing to yield to an emergency vehicle...a class 1 misdemeanor. This is just one example (there are plenty more), of a law that is generally approved of by everybody, being improperly applied. If you think that only happens with relatively minor traffic violations and won't affect otherwise good people, you are sorely mistaken, and I hope you never wind up on the losing end of an unjust legal battle.
