Did you know it’s illegal to drive in reverse on a public road in Arizona? Or that in South Carolina it is illegal to have trash in your car? Here are just a few strange and sometimes nonsensical state driving laws.
Let’s start with our own state. It is apparently illegal to drive a black car in Denver on Sundays. Though technically still a written law, it’s doubtful that it is still enforced.
It is illegal to change clothes in a vehicle in Delaware. In order to change, a driver must find a place to stop.
Car dealerships and individual sellers are prohibited from selling vehicles on Sundays in Indiana. In Maine, it’s illegal to buy a car on Sunday. Good luck figuring that one out.
In Missouri, it is illegal to honk someone else’s car horn, even if the car is not running.
It is illegal for bikers to ride without their hands on the handlebars in Wisconsin. Naturally, this makes it illegal to text and bike as well.
Driving while wearing a bathrobe or housecoat is illegal in Cali. If you’re going to go out in your PJs, skip the robe.
If you get pulled over, put on a happy face. It’s illegal to frown at a police officer in New Jersey.
Any vehicle in motion is prohibited from using hazard lights. Hazards can hold be used when the vehicle is stopped.
Reading comic books while driving is illegal here. The law doesn’t say anything about other books or reading material though.
No blindfolded driving. It’s actually written into law that it’s illegal to drive blindfolded in Alabama. Just in case you had doubts. Driving laws, though sometimes outdated and irrelevant, were put in place for a good reason.
Though the above are silly examples, be sure you’re following traffic laws at all times. From all of us here at Quick-Set Auto Glass, drive safely out there!
