10.) Texas Requires Windshield Wipers, But Not Necessarily A Windshield
Quote :
To register a car in Texas (or in New York), one must have windshield wipers.
However, the windshield itself is optional.

9.) In Oregon, You Can Legally Turn Left On Red
Quote :
"Oregon drivers are also allowed to turn left from a two-way street onto a one-way - including onto a freeway ramp - on a red."

8.) In Oregon, It's Illegal To Pump Your Own Gas

OR considers it a matter of handling of hazardous materials. In theory, the guy pumping your gas in OR has been specially trained, even.

7.) It's Illegal To Honk Or Not Park At A McDonald's
Quote :
In Arkansas, if you drive to McDonald's, but change your mind, you will get a ticket unless you stop the car and park first. You'll also get a ticket if it's after 9 p.m., you see a friend across the street of said restaurant, and you honk your horn.
Quote :
In Paramount California: No person shall drive a motor vehicle onto the premises of a drive-in restaurant and leave the premises without parking such motor vehicle, unless there is no unoccupied parking space available on the premises. Source: Code 1961, 25-156, 25-158Sec. 18-54.

Sounding of horns at sandwich shops. No person shall sound the horn on a vehicle at any place where cold drinks or sandwiches are served after 9:00 p.m. Source: Code 1961, 25-74P

6.) In New Jersey, Hanging Dice Or Air Fresheners Are Illegal
Quote :

5.) In California, It's Illegal To Jump From A Car At 65 MPH

4.) In PA, You Have To Send Up Rocket Signals To Avoid Animals
Quote :
Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.

Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass.

In the event that a horse refuses to pass a car on the road, the owner must take his car apart and conceal the parts in the bushes.

3.) In Massachusetts, It's Illegal To Have A Bro Truck
Quote :
Massachusetts lift height law. It states vehicles can only be lifted a height determined by the following equation based on wheelbase:

(1) The maximum mechanical lift for four wheel drive motor vehicles
shall be calculated by multiplying the wheel base times the wheel track,
and dividing the product by a safety factor of 2200:
i.e., 92" w/b x 58" w/t = 5336/2200 = 2" (maximum mechanical lift). Which for reference, a Jeep cherokees maximum lift is approx. 2.5 inches, which is complete bull.

2.) In Alabama, You Can Drive Against Traffic If You Have A Lantern
Quote :
In Alabama it is legal to drive the wrong way down a 1 way street, just as long as you have a lantern hanging on the front of your vehicle.
