    Bizarre Driving Laws

    The Greek sage Aristotle once penned, “Even when the laws have been written down, they ought not always remain unchanged.” Not only is this wise advice, but it was also prophetic; especially when you focus on some of the mystifying driving laws that linger on the pages of state statutes.
    So as to assure that your next cross-country vacation does not get pricked by the thorns of legality, we at DMV.ORG have organized a list of arcane state laws you should be aware of. For nothing can be more embarrassing than having to phone your attorney from Alaska for legal assistance in escaping a fine for lashing your poodle to the roof of your car.

    [h2]Alabama[/h2]
    • Apparently ‘Bama is an acronym for Blunt All Motorist Adventures, for officials there have inexplicably made it illegal to drive while blindfolded.
    [h2]Alaska[/h2]
    • Contrary to public opinion roof racks are not specifically designed for skis, snowboards and ++++++++++++++++++++er spaniels. Or at least not in Alaska, where authorities have found it necessary to declare it illegal to tether a dog to the roof of a car.
    [h2]Arkansas[/h2]
    • Think twice while in Arkansas if you harbor an unflagging passion for cold cut sandwiches and honking your car horn. Arkansas authorities have deemed it illegal to blare a car horn where ice cold beverages or sandwiches are served after 9 p.m.
    [h2]California[/h2]
    • 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.
    [h2]Connecticut[/h2]
    • No need to get your Lexus Sport Luxury Sedan painted blaze orange. Hunting from cars in Connecticut is illegal, even during deer season.
    [h2]Georgia[/h2]
    • Going on an intuitive hunch that teeter-totters and cars don’t mix, officials in Dublin, Georgia, have made it illegal to drive through playgrounds.
    [h2]Illinois[/h2]
    • Beware if you own a bicycle in Galesburg, Illinois. The police there have no tolerance for “fancy riding.”
    [h2]Iowa[/h2]
    • Throw it and they (police) will come. In Mount Vernon, Iowa, it is illegal to throw your Red Ryder onto the highway.
    [h2]Kansas[/h2]
    • In Derby, Kansas, it is considered a misdemeanor to screech your tires while driving. This abominable act can cost you 30 days in jail.
    • In Topeka, Kansas, it is unlawful to transport dead poultry along Kansas Avenue. Lesson: look elsewhere for a KFC.
    [h2]Kentucky[/h2]
    • Make sure your canine does not harbor a weird fetish for tailgate lights or trailer hitches while in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. You’ll be fined if your pet molests a vehicle.
    [h2]Maine[/h2]
    • Be careful about Jonesing for a Bavarian Cream while in South Berwick, Maine. You’ll be ticketed if you park in front of Dunkin Donuts.
    [h2]Maryland[/h2]
    • Keep in mind while traveling through Rockville, Maryland, that the streets there are rated G. If you possess a PG-17 vocabulary, take the bypass. Swearing from a vehicle in Rockville is considered a misdemeanor.
    [h2]Minnesota[/h2]
    • In Minnetonka, Minnesota if you drive a truck that leaves mud, dirt or sticky substances on any road you will be considered a public nuisance that is harming the peace, safety and general welfare of the town.
    [h2]Missouri[/h2]
    • 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.
    [h2]Nevada[/h2]
    • To prevent any literal interpretation of Reno’s No Standing signs, authorities there have made it illegal to place a bench or chair in the middle of the road.
    [h2]New Jersey[/h2]
    • Don’t be feeling all fuzzy-warm about New Jersey residents if you’re driving through the state with a “Honk if You Love Skippy the Kangaroo” bumper sticker soldered to your vehicle’s trunk. New Jersey residents are required by law to honk before passing.
    • Arbor Day requires careful planning in Blairstown, New Jersey, for local officials there have made it illegal to plant trees in the middle of the street.
    [h2]New York[/h2]
    • Be sure to enter your vehicle feeling sartorially content while in Sag Harbor, New York. Officials there have made it illegal to disrobe while in your car.
    [h2]North Carolina[/h2]
    • Officials in Dunn, North Carolina, apparently harbor no faith in the intuitive powers of common sense:
    • First, they have made it illegal to play in traffic. So if you’re a parent make sure your kids play Candyland on the floor of a living room rather than on the asphalt of a passing lane.
    • Second, it is illegal to drive through a cemetery if you’re not there to dig a grave or bury someone. So if you intend to visit the grave of a loved one bring really powerful binoculars.
    • And third, even if you are considerate enough to yell “On your left,” officials still deem it illegal to drive on sidewalks.
    [h2]Ohio[/h2]
    • In Canton, Ohio, people wearing roller skates cannot share the streets with cars. And yes, this applies even during the “couples only” skate.
    [h2]Oregon[/h2]
    • In Oregon you need to be not only alert for state troopers with speed guns, but also with stop watches. For you can be ticketed if you leave your car door open longer than is deemed necessary.
    • You will be slapped with a Class A traffic violation if you use your car on an Oregon highway to prove your physical endurance.
    • If you opt for driving on a sidewalk while in Oregon, be sure to not attract the wrath of the law by not yielding to pedestrians.
    [h2]Rhode Island[/h2]
    • In Scituate, Rhode Island, it is illegal to drive with beer in your vehicle even if it is unopened. So, in other words, if you’re a beer delivery driver you’re out of luck.
    [h2]South Carolina[/h2]
    • There’s a good reason why automakers don’t manufacture models named the Dodge Dumpster or the Lexus Litterbin. For in Hilton Head, South Carolina, it is illegal to store trash in your vehicle due to rat problems.
    [h2]West Virginia[/h2]
    • Virginia may be for lovers, but West Virginia is for meat lovers. Officials in the Mountain State have deemed it perfectly legal for anyone to scavenge road kill.

    Minnesota - I can tell you that this law is because in certain areas trucks/tractors coming out of fields leave mud on the road near the driveway where it can be like hitting a patch of bumpy ice. We tried to get a similar law passed here in Iowa and it didn't make it.

    Connecticut - Is it legal to hunt from a car anywhere? In Michigan you will lose your car if you are caught hunting from it. Very dangerous and stupid and I can't imagine why this is on a "stupid law" list.
