5 Bizarre Rules of the Road

bizarre rules of the roadThere are many traffic laws that we as drivers must follow while getting from “a to b.” These laws vary from state to state, but all serve one common purpose: to keep us safe on the road. In “Liar Liar,” Fletcher Reed (Jim Carrey) gets pulled over for a number of reasons, and he can tell you which ones too. However, there are laws that do exist that are, let’s say, bizarre.

An article found on CNN.com/AOL lists just a snippet of unusual traffic laws that exist in these United States. Here are some of our favorites:

  • In California, no vehicle without a driver can exceed 60 miles per hour.
  • In Florida, if an elephant, goat or alligator is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
  • In Montana, it is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.


  • In Tennessee, it is illegal shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile.
  • In Oregon, a door on a car may not be left open longer than necessary.

Be careful not only of how you drive, but also make sure you have a chaperone for your sheep. I wonder how these regulations fit in with auto insurance. For more unusual laws, check out the entire article. And remember to always Play it Safe!
