Do you think driving carefully and obeying the speed limit will keep your record clean? No such luck. Think again.
Danger at Dunkin' Donuts -
Think twice about stopping for breakfast in South Berwick, Maine. You can get a ticket for parking in front of the Dunkin' Donuts.
Where is one supposed to park???
Don't Trust Your Instincts -
In Alabama it is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. We hate to think how many times this had to happen to warrant legislative attention.
Knowing how STUPID people are, this really isn't surprising.
Keep Quiet in Arkansas -
In Arkansas it is illegal for a person to blare the horn on a vehicle at any place where cold drinks or sandwiches are served after 9 p.m.
Can you imagine???
Target Practice? -
In Mount Vernon, Iowa, you can't shoot arrows into the street without written permission from the town council. Hopefully target practice isn't a good enough reason to get permission.
This way you won't get struck by an arrow! Hopefully.
In Derby, Kan., it is considered a misdemeanor to screech your tires while driving. This heinous act can get you up to 30 days in jail.
That'll teach ya!
Who You Gonna Call? -
In Dunn, N.C., it is illegal to drive through a cemetery without purpose. Wearing a 'Ghost Busters' costume should be enough to communicate your purpose to any nearby police officers.
Do people actually drive around in a cometary without purpose?
Your Dog Rides Inside -
In Alaska it is illegal to tie a dog to the roof of your car. As far as we're aware, there's still no law against tying a bunch of dogs to the front of your sled.
What about lambs?
Keep it Clean -
In Rockville, Md., you will be slapped with a misdemeanor if caught swearing while on a highway. Luckily, you'll only be fined if your profane language is uttered "within the hearing of persons passing by." If a driver curses in Rockville and no one is there to hear him, does he make a sound?
What about using profanity at work?
Hands to Yourself -
In University City, Mo., you cannot honk the horn of someone else's car. Tooting your own horn, however, is entirely legal.
(I can't believe I'm about to ask this!) What about having sex in the car?
Audible Warnings -
In New Jersey, drivers are required to beep their car horns before passing another vehicle. Technically, the law requires "audible warning" with a "warning device," so feel free to ditch your horn and get creative.
ROAD HOG! YOU JERK! SLOW POKE! PUT THE METAL TO THE PEDAL!
Green Thumbs Beware -
In Blairstown, N.J., it is illegal to plant trees in the middle of the street. Luckily most people find it very difficult to do in the first place.
Wait till there's no traffic.
No Shirt, No Shoes ...
In Sag Harbor, N.Y., it is illegal to disrobe in your car.
Does this include having sex?
Tastes Like Asphalt
In West Virginia, it is perfectly legal, for road maintenance purposes, to scavenge road kill. What's for dinner?
I picked up something on the side of the road.
Pied Pipers Need Not Apply
In Hilton Head, S.C., you cannot leave trash in your vehicle out of fear of attracting rats.
Gotta quick clean out my car.
