Weird Driving Laws
Somehow funny and strange driving laws make it on the books in certain states. Why they stay on the books may be the real question. Check out these laws from states where we operate:
· No matter how luxuriously comfortable that divided highway may look, it is illegal in Eureka, California, to use a road as a bed.
· In order to save money on having to crop dust their streets, officials in Chico, California, have made it illegal to plant rutabagas in roadways.
· Officials in Glendale, California, no doubt, caved in to insurance lobbyists when they inexplicably decided to make it illegal to jump from a car at 65 mph.
· Don’t expect to find any salt-rimmed curbs in Hermosa Beach, California. Officials there have made it illegal to spill your Margarita on any street.
In Oregon you need to be not only alert for state troopers with speed guns, but also with stop watches; you can be ticketed if you leave your car door open longer than is deemed necessary.
If you are a horn-honking hooligan you better be carrying your vehicle’s bill of sale if you have the nerve to toot your horn while in University City, Missouri. Officials there have wisely made it illegal to honk the horn of someone else’s car.
