Strange Driving Laws: The Third
Now, we present to you, the third and final installment of “Strange Driving Laws.” We are sure that there are plenty more out there and when we find them, we will let you know. But for right now, this is what we have to offer.
New York: In Sag Harbor, it is illegal for you to disrobe while you are in your car. We advise making sure that your outfit meets with your approval before you actually leave the house.
North Carolina: In Dunn, it is illegal to drive your vehicle on the sidewalks. It is also against the law to drive through a cemetery, unless the purpose of your visit it to dig a grave or bury someone.
Ohio: It is illegal to run out of gas in Youngstown.
Oregon: You must yield to pedestrians while driving on the sidewalk. If that is the case, then we think they should post pedestrian crossing signs on the sidewalks as well. You can also get a ticket if you leave your car door open for a longer period of time than is needed, as so determined by law enforcement officials. Lastly, if you are on a highway, it is a serious offense to use your car to showcase your physical endurance.
Rhode Island: (Scituate) You are not allowed to drive if there is an alcoholic beverage in your vehicle—even if it is unopened.
If you are passing a car, according to the law you must alert the vehicle being passed with an “audible signal.”
South Carolina: In Hilton Head, it is illegal to store trash inside your car or truck.
