Bizarre Driving Laws – North Carolina

  • 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 a ladder for accessing the roof of your vehicle while parked outside the cemetery.
      • And third, even if you are considerate enough to yell “On your left,” officials still deem it illegal to drive on sidewalks.

Bizarre Driving Laws – California

  • 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.
