Our ability to transport ourselves from one location to another using automobiles has got to be one of our greatest strengths. This has made the world a much smaller place and has also allowed us to fully utilize the land at our disposal. Unfortunately, the sheer number of people driving around in cities has led to the creation of very stringent driving laws around the world. Some of these laws are absolutely necessary in maintaining order, but a few laws are quite pointless. This list features 10 of the silliest driving laws from around the world.
Frowning Is Frowned Upon
It is illegal to frown at a traffic or police officer in New Jersey.
Monkey On Your Backseat
If for some reason you happen to have a gorilla in the backseat of your car, make sure you don’t drive through Massachusetts. You can actually get fined for that.
