Not really enforced, but there are some every now and then who gets a ticket for it... flashing lights to give the heads-up about a Check-Point ahead will get you a ticket if you are spotted doing it. Near both ends of the Check-Points usually there are a couple plain chase-cars... they will get you if you do that or do an obvious U-Turn to avoid going through the VCP.

Yes, I have seen that at drunk checkpoints in the past. Have not seen one of those in years, I think they may have decided they were unconstitutional.

Gettysburg PA will issue a parking ticket for each bike parked in a metered space with an expired meter. Not 1 ticket for one space, but one ticket for each bike in the space. I could see a ticket on 1 bike, for 1 space, but 3 tickets for 1 space? No. That's what I call robbery by the civil authority. I'll never go back there.
