Lawmakers are an odd bunch. If you need proof, just look at some of the laws still on the books from around the country. I’m sure there must have been some reason for all of these at some time, but it’s beyond me to figure out what the need for these laws could have been. Why don’t you take a stab at it?

Missouri: It is illegal to drive on the highway with an uncaged bear in your vehicle.
I guess it’s ok on rural roads or in a neighborhood.

Florida: If you park an elephant at a parking meter in Orlando it will cost you the same as a regular automobile.
How many people did this to cause lawmakers to feel the need to set a standard?

Alabama: You are not allowed to drive while blindfolded.
Obviously, these lawmakers were geniuses, while the driving population was not.

Colorado: In Denver you cannot drive a black car on Sunday.
So, no funerals on Sunday, then? I’m just askin’.

Massachusetts: Taxi drivers are prohibited from making love in the front seat of their taxis while on duty.
Thank heavens! No one wants to see that. I guess passengers in the back seat can do whatever they like.

Ohio: It is illegal to ride on the roof of a taxi.
You can make love there as long as the vehicle is not moving and you are not the on duty driver.

Georgia: State assemblymen cannot get speeding tickets when the assembly is in session.
Can anyone say “self-serving”?

California: A driverless vehicle may not go more than 60mph.
Hmmm, might as well keep this one. It won’t be so silly in a few years.

Utah: It is against the law for a woman to have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance. This “crime” is a misdemeanor and the woman must have her name published in the local paper. The man faces no consequences and remains anonymous.
Sorry, but I really can’t add anything to this one.

Washington: When you enter this state with criminal intentions it is your legal duty to stop at the state line and telephone the Chief of Police.
I’m sure this law has cut down on the number of criminals coming into Washington.

And lastly,
Tennessee: When a woman drives a car in this forward-thinking state a man must walk in front of her and wave a red flag as a warning.
Grocery shopping takes forever.

The image of George Bush is not really necessary. You have the potential to offend some of the readers and advertisers in the Auto Shopper.
