Weird Traffic Laws from Around the World
One of our faithful readers, identifying himself only as Simon the Groovemaster, sent along an infographic he created highlighting some of the weirdest driving laws from around the world. And we're glad he did, because some of these laws are indeed strange. As a regular visitor to Spain, I get to live one of them every summer. But lets take a look at that and other laws that might leave you scratching your head. RELATED: See Photos of a Rare Dutch 354 Porsche Police Car
So, if you wear glasses and drive in Spain, you have to carry a spare pair. Just in case, you know, your regular pair breaks. When I first got glasses, I traveled with a pair of $5 drugstore reading glasses as a backup. And then prayed I didn’t get pulled over by an optometrist moonlighting as a cop.
Of course, that’s probably not as weird as the clothing requirement in Thailand. Don’t get behind the wheel unless you have a T-shirt on. I can’t even begin to fathom what the impetus was for that law - unless Thailand’s president saw his mother-in-law sitting shirtless at the breakfast table or something.

This one’s not weird actually but worth noting: you can’t drive with a dog on the roof of your car in Alaska. Insert inappropriate Mitt Romney joke here. And this animal-related law is worth noting because it is very weird: you can’t shoot whales from a car in Tennessee. Nevermind that there are no whales in Tennessee because it has no coastline.
What’s the weirdest traffic law you’ve come across? Share it in the comments below. Just make sure you’re not posting on your phone in a crosswalk in China while doing so. In Beijing, drivers don’t have to stop for pedestrians in the striped lines.
