Crazy Traffic Laws in the U.S.

September 1st, 2020 by

Louisiana is no doubt an exciting and fascinating destination for travelers. Year-round, people from all over come to have fun Louisiana style with great food, exciting attractions, and to experience the deep influence of Cajun and Creole culture. If you are traveling in-state or out of the state, you might want to familiarize yourself with some of America’s whacko-do traffic laws. Hebert’s Town and Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Shreveport would like to share a list of some of the most unusual traffic laws of our neighboring and nearby states. So buckle up your seatbelts and enjoy the ride! 

Alabama: It is illegal to drive while blindfolded. We’re trying to imagine why they felt the need to put this one on the books, honestly. 

Arkansas: In Little Rock, the state’s capital, it is illegal to honk your car horn anywhere that serves cold drinks or sandwiches after 9 p.m. So remember, don’t honk your horn at Sonic out of enthusiasm when waiting for your order of onion rings after 9 p.m.

Georgia: In the city of Marietta, spitting out of your car or a bus is illegal. But if you are in a moving truck, spit until your heart’s content.

Kansas: It is against the law to transport dead poultry on Kansas Avenue in Topeka. Does that mean no delicious spicy buffalo wings on the streets of Topeka?  

Louisiana: By law, a female driver’s husband is required to wave a flag in front of her car before she can drive it. That’s whacky!

Mississippi: Do not honk your horn in Oxford, because it’s against the law. (Boo!)

Missouri: You cannot honk someone else’s horn in University City. (Double Boo!)

Oklahoma: It is against the law to read a comic book while driving. However, they don’t mention other reading materials.

Tennessee: It is illegal to shoot any game other than whales from a moving vehicle. Is there a whale problem in Tennessee?

Texas: You must have windshield wipers to register a car. The windshield overall is apparently optional.

We hope these weird laws enlighten you on your cross-country journeys and give you some chuckles as well.
