Strangest Traffic Laws
By: Good2GoPublished: December 8, 2015
It’s safe to say that most drivers know basic traffic laws, at least we hope so, and most laws are pretty straight forward – stop at stop signs, do the speed limit, use your turn signal, and avoid causing an accident. Outside of these common regulations lives a list of bizarre, at times unexplainable, traffic laws unique to individual states or cities. Granted, most of these laws are outdated and rarely enforced, but they’re still there. Let’s take a look at these strange traffic laws by state.
While it’s a bad idea in every state, it is illegal to drive while blindfolded in Alabama.
If you don’t have enough room to fit your dog in the car, don’t tether them to the roof, it’s illegal… and morally questionable.
After 9pm, it is against the law to honk your horn outside of an establishment where ice-cold beverages or sandwiches are served.
If you are in a car that is travelling faster than 65 mph in Glendale, think twice before jumping out… it’s illegal.
Even during hunting season, it is illegal to hunt from within a car.
Talk about special privilege! State assembly members in Georgia cannot be given speeding tickets while the State Assembly is in session.
You cannot change your clothes in the car in Evanston.
If you have one, it is illegal to throw your Red Ryder BB gun onto the highway.
Sometimes it’s unavoidable, but if you happen to screech your tires in Derby, you just committed a misdemeanor that could land you in jail for up to 30 days.
Don’t let your pet get aggressive or sexual with any car in Fort Thomas… you’ll be subject to a hefty fine.
You will receive a ticket if you park in front of a Dunkin Donuts. Yes, life is unfair.
If you insist on having a pet gorilla, it is illegal to put them in the backseat.
Find another restful place; it’s a lawful offense to put a chair or bench on the road in Reno.
Don’t forget to honk your horn when passing someone in Jersey… it’s the law.
The town of Dunn has taken the initiative to protect its children and playful adults: it has criminalized playing in traffic.
Roller skaters and cars are not allowed to share the streets of Canton and it is against the law to run out of gas in Youngstown.
A ticket awaits you if you leave your car door(s) open longer than is deemed necessary.
Because of rat problems in Hilton Head, it is illegal to store trash in your car
If you’re going to ride a horse around, make sure it looks good, because it is illegal to ride an ugly one.
This law has a slightly different tone than the rest. In the state of West Virginia, it is perfectly legal to scavenge and eat road kill. Bon appetit!
