Very Strange Driving Laws
Some states and countries have very strange laws about driving and cars. Some are so bizarre you wonder how they could have gotten through state legislatures.
Let’s take a look at a few.
Volvo –known for its safe cars—says that by 2017 it will put some 100 self driving cars on the road. Some say the self driving car could cut auto sales in half. Is America even ready for a self-driving car?
A study has shown that parents say the do the same dangerous driving behaviors they teach their kids not to do. It’s awfully hard to convince kids not to do the same things their parents do behind the wheel. It’s hard to have a talk with teens about driving. But some parents have their kids sign a parent-teen driving agreement to help prevent those bad driving habits.
The safest driving city in the U.S. is Ft. Collins, Colorado.
The most common reason most people fail a road test is improper yielding, even though parallel parking is the one skill that strikes terror into the hearts of those taking their road test for a driver’s license.
In the Philippines, you can only drive on Mondays if your license tag ends in 1 or 2. If you think that’s strange, in our own Arkansas, drivers must not blast their horn after 9 p.m. in any area where cold drinks or sandwiches are sold. Gotta wonder about the lobbyist that got that law through. Not to be outdone, Missouri it is not legal to honk the horn of someone else’s car. Seriously?
And here’s a strange one: you can not be blindfolded in Alabama while operating a vehicle. Good thing. If you did, how hard would it be to get low-cost Ohio auto insurance quotes. Pretty easy.
Not sure how much this is enforced in Denver, but drivers can’t drive a black car on Sunday. And in Maine it is illegal to park in front of a Dunkin Donuts.
People in Alaska are breaking the law if the tie a dog to the roof of their car. Obviously, this must have happened but the fact that it required a law to forbid it doesn’t say much for some Alaska drivers.
Do you think people driving country roads at night in Pennsylvania really stop every mile to detonate a rocket single so livestock know you’re coming? By law, they must.
