We can all probably agree that while some laws of the road are frustrating, e.g. no text while driving, speed limits, adhering to traffic signs. More often than not, these laws come from good intentions—mostly to ensure our safety—and ultimately create a better driving environment for everyone. While many drivers across the nation have no issue with the rules of the road, there are specific laws out there in certain parts of the country that are so absurd that it might make you want to ride your bike instead.
There are some laws that you question what had previously occurred for this law to even pass. Like in the case of an Alaskan statute that states that no animal can be tied to the rood of a car unless they are protected in an enclosed container. There are so many things wrong with the mere fact that this kind of law is in effect.
Then there are laws with good intentions that seem as if the lawmakers didn’t get completely think it out. In effort to decrease excessive noise in the evening, the state of Arkansas had made it illegal to honk your horn after 9PM next to cold-cut sandwich shops. While the noise curfew seems ok, the location is definitely peculiar.
