My grandfather was a highway patrolman. I don't generally have fear of the police although situationally I could. My job also tends to make them much nicer to me. (Pediatric icu RN). I interact with police at work regularly as well (due to unfortunate circumstances for children sadly). I started as a trauma icu RN. Both that and being around the law growing up taught me that people don't appreciate the risk factors in their daily life. Take the OP. He basically stated he's combining together two risk factors that could create a situation with an LEO. Traffic stops are the gateway to police interactions. Have your stuff together outwardly and 99.99% police are going to be very disinterested in you. Smoking anything is a risk factor because it gets on everything and smells. Combine together speeding and other dumb stuff that is in any way illegal and you ought to be afraid of police. They are going to mess your life up at the least with fines and court dates.
