The Strangest Driving Laws On Earth

By | source: Sep 15th, 2013

Driving is one of those things can be a blessing and a curse. It’s great to be able to get in the car and drive to the store and have a trunk to put groceries in. It’s nice to be able to get somewhere fast when you are running late. But it sucks to get stuck in traffic and it sucks to gas up your tank.

For some, it can suck to even lift your finger to turn on the blinker. Although not always completely necessary, it is required to turn on your headlights while your windshield wipers are on. All the rules you have to memorize before being issued a drivers license are to better protect the drivers on the road.

This infographic pertains to some strange road laws around the world.

Okay Alaska, you’re right, no one should be letting their dog sit on the roof of the car while they are driving. What incident could have possibly occurred in one of the coldest places in the United States that would lead to the implementation of a law like this? Was this ever a serious issue?

In Russia it is illegal to drive a dirty car… What is dirty? Clean. What is clean? Very strange law, Russia.

But none as strange as the provision that one must not shoot whales from their vehicle in Tennessee. Who in the heck is responsible for that one? [infographic provided by Think Insurance]
