Can the state of North Carolina charge for personal property when they repossess your car?

The state doesn't repossess your car - private companies do that on behalf of the lienholder. They don't charge you for private property left in your car when they repossess it - that would be illegal. They charge a "storage fee" for the items they remove from your car. Underhanded, yes, but they can legally do it.

Is it legal in the state of California for a police officer to hide in the driveway of a private residence in order to catch people for speeding?

If a police officer records someone speeding, it doesn't matter what the nature of the property they take the reading from is. If they record you speeding while they're in a driveway, they can act on it. As for using a private residence, it's something which requires the consent of the property owner - they can't just occupy someone's driveway to set up a speed trap while ignoring the rights of the property owner, and it's often a discouraged practice, although California tends to have their own way of doing things.

Yes, as long as the repossessor does not commit a "breach of the peace" in doing so. In other words, they can't break into your garage and take it, but if it's just sitting on your driveway or in a parking lot (even if that parking lot is technically "private property" in the sense that it's owned by someone other than the government), too bad for you.

Is it illegal to clock someone speeding while on their motorcycle on someones driveway?

In most states a property owner can make his property subject to vehicle code enforcement. Then the violation is the same as if it had occurred on the street. If you did not have permission to use the driveway you could also be charged with trespassing. Vehicle codes vary quite a bit from state to state. Several of my friends and acquaintances died on motorcycles doing stunts and speeding on private driveways and lots. The cop may be doing you a big favor.

Your neighbor has begun to let the public have acces to a private gated parking area on her side of a shared driveway can she do this?

The answer all depends on the language used when the shared driveway was created and state laws. It also depends on where exactly she is providing access, over the driveway easement or on her own land. If the land involved was specifically dedicated to a "shared driveway" to be shared by the owners of the abutting properties then she has no right to put the land to another use. You should consult with the attorney who represented you when you purchased the property. Shared driveway easements are an unending source of trouble when one or both owners overstep their rights. You need to check the language in the deeds and determine what state laws govern the easement. For that you need expert legal advice. You should act ASAP.
