    Do you know why I pulled you over?

    Some antiquated state driving laws are flat-out crazy. Got a housecoat? If you're a woman, it's illegal to wear one while driving in California. But what about modern rules of the road that seem very unusual and can still result in a hefty fine?

    complete list

    In Montana, it is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.
    Now if only they had that law in Wisconsin...

    Re: Do you know why I pulled you over?

    In California, no vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.

    I assume this is a vehicle being towed??? But then why not just make the speed limit 60?


    And another one from Florida, which seems to have the best obsolete laws:

    Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal.

    In Tennessee, it is illegal shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile.

    You got to be kidding, right? Who writes these laws?

    That was taken off the books about 2 or 3 years ago in ND. It wasn't if they showed up at your house, it was if you were going across the reservation on a covered wagon you could legally shoot any native american you saw.

    So... I guess not paying that parking ticket isn't the only law I broke.

    I remember one that said you had to disassemble your car and hide it on the side of the road if a horse was approaching from the other direction until the horse had passed.
