I've always rented a car or traveled with a friend and paid my share. Have never been pulled over and have been visiting since 1999. Just obey the speed limits and you should be fine.

I rent when I know I'll be exploring all around. If I'm hopping shorter distances on the coast I might take the bus. Make sure your read all about insurance and some possible gas scams idiot pumpers might try. (no self serve). I too have never had problems. Another consideration is parking-but a small one-never found that to be a problem either.

Rent with a trunk for gear, luggage, purhases storage.

Depends where you're going as well: inland, coastal, big cities, islands? Not necessary to rent for whole time if you've planned some downtime or stays in one area for more than a few days. Can combine cars, buses, taxi's.
