Three Weird Laws to Be Wary of When Traveling This Holiday


California penal code

If you’re driving out of state this holiday season, be careful. Aside from all the risks typically involved with driving long distances, you may drive through a state whose law books are chock full of bizarre legal statutes seemingly devoid of any sort of legislative intent, and may inadvertently break them.

To help you be as lawful-abiding as possible when you’re away, here are a few of the weirdest legal statutes our legislative history research was able to pull up.

In Colorado, You Can’t Drive a Black Car on Sunday.

Whether this is a superstitious legal statute or something more practical is unknown, but the fact remains: you can’t drive a black car on Sundays in Colorado. So if your car just so happens to be black, and you have to drive through the Centennial State, it might be best to go around or choose another date to leave.

In Kansas, You Could Face Jail Time if Your Tires Screech.

If you’re traveling through Kansas, be extra careful, as you could spend up to 30 days in jail if your tires screech. Just be sure to keep your distance, and remain vigilant, and you’ll be fine. If you do have to brake suddenly, hopefully there won’t be any police around.

In Idaho, You Can’t Drive a Motorcycle if You’re 88-Years-Old or Older.

If you’re going to or through Idaho to see your grandkids or other relatives, it’s probably best to head out in the station wagon or rent a car, since the Gem State expressly forbids anyone 88-years-old or older from riding a motorcycle.

Believe it or not, there are tons of other odd legal statutes ruling the roads out there. If your own law research has found a few strange legal statutes not mentioned on this list, feel free to share on this list. Read more about this topic at this link.
