Be Prepared for It All

Oregon has some pretty strange traffic laws. For instance, drivers must not test their physical endurance while on the highway and babies cannot be carried on the running boards of a car. But if you think those driving laws are odd, wait until you hear about these weirder ones from around the world!

Get ready to be astonished as the auto repair experts at London’s Automotive in Corvallis, Oregon tell you about the world’s weirdest traffic laws.

Dirty Car

It’s a smart idea to keep your car pristine if you plan to drive in Russia. Driving a dirty car warrants a fine of up to 2,000 rubles, which equates to $26.72.

Parking Meter Pals

In Florida, you’re more than welcome to hitch your elephant, alligator, or goat to a parking meter. However, you are legally obligated to feed the meter first.

Drunk Passengers

Driving while under the influence is illegal in most places, and for good reason. But it’s illegal to be intoxicated as a passenger in a car in Japan. Even if the driver is 100% sober, they can still get in trouble if their copilot is drunk.

Even stranger, Japanese drivers can be fined for splashing water or mud onto pedestrians.

Lightless Horses

If you want to ride your horse in Texarkana, Texas at night, you need to attach tail lights to its rear end first! This is actually a pretty smart idea to keep both you and your steed safe and well seen.

Sunday Sales

Ever bought a car on a Sunday in Pennsylvania? If you have, you’ve unknowingly broken the law. Also, if you plan on riding a Pittsburgh trolley, it’s illegal to take your donkey with you.

Roof Hounds

There’s a strange driving law in Alaska that prohibits putting your dog on the roof of your vehicle as you’re driving. Why anyone would do that in the first place is beyond us.
