Yes, there are plenty of traffic laws in certain areas that don’t make much sense. Here, though, we present a collection of traffic laws from other parts of the world that are just bizarre:
–In Thailand, the law states that no driver, male or female, shall ever drive without a shirt.
–In South Africa, “the driver of a vehicle on a public road shall stop such vehicle at the request or on the signal of a person leading or driving any bovine animal, horse, ass, mule, sheep, goat, pig, or ostrich on such road.” Or face a $500 fine.
–Splashing a pedestrian with water is illegal in Japan.
–In Montana, you can forget about driving with a sheep in the truck unless the sheep has a chaperone… and the state of Alabama had the presence of mind to make it illegal to drive while blindfolded.
–On the island of Cyprus, it’s illegal to raise a hand from the steering wheel. No waving at anyone, no eating or drinking anything while you drive.
–Danish drivers are required to check under the car before starting it…just in case anyone is sleeping under there.
–In Spain, if you need glasses to drive, you’re required to keep a spare pair of glasses in the vehicle at all times.
–In Singapore, it’s illegal to ever come within 50 meters of a pedestrian. 50 meters equals about 162 feet. Good luck with that.
So, do you still think there are some weird traffic laws in your locale??
