As you may have read in a previous post about unusual driving laws, it is illegal to drive on the sidewalks in North Carolina.  That is not the case in Oregon; it is, however, against the law to not yield to pedestrians when driving on the sidewalks.pedestrian crossing sign

Weird Driving Laws: The South

There are a number of bizarre driving laws out there today.

One of the strangest laws is in Hilton Head, South Carolina. You are not allowed to store trash in your vehicle if you live in this city.

The reason that this law has been put into effect is because trash can cause rat problems.

In Dublin, Georgia, you are not allowed to drive your vehicle through a playground. Apparently, teeter totters and cars do not mix.

Because driving blindfolded is so dangerous (and apparently common in this state?), Alabama officials have made it illegal to do so.Blindfolded Girl

The purpose of laws is to keep drivers safe. However, there are some driving laws that are just silly.

You are not allowed to throw your Red Ryder on the highway in the state of Iowa.  If you are caught throwing it on the road, you will find yourself in trouble with the police.

In Minnetonka, Minnesota, you will be considered a public nuisance if your truck leaves dirt, mud or any sticky substance on the road so you may want to make sure that you keep your truck clean.
