By on August 30, 2016

Ever been stopped on the road by a police officer and thought you absolutely didn’t deserve that ticket? Well, watch out when you’re driving in places listed below because you might get flagged down for the most unexpected reasons:

  • ALABAMA – It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street as long as a lantern is attached to the front of your car. Lanterns have special powers in Alabama. Noted!

Also, it is illegal to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. Hmmm… We wonder why.

  • HAWAII – As of 2013, car passengers who don’t wear seatbelts are subject to $100 fines. If all the seats are full, though, don’t worry: it’s totally legal for anyone over 12 years old to hang out in the bed of the truck. In the open. With zero protection. ZERO!
