Strict traffic rules were created to ensure the safety of both drivers and pedestrians. But sometimes, you can’t help but question the logic behind them. If you think that red light ticket you got the other day was downright unfair, wait until you see some of these bizarre traffic laws in other places:
Women wearing a dressing gown are prohibited to drive on Californian roads. Also, roads should not be used as a substitute for beds. Thankfully, no matter how absurd these laws may sound, you can always ask a red light ticket attorney for assistance.
To address the traffic problem in Manila, authorities came up with a special number coding scheme that prohibits vehicles with certain numbers on their license plates from using major roads on certain days of the week. For example, you won’t be allowed to use your car on Mondays if your number plate ends in 1 or 2.
Be aware of the two highways when approaching the holy city of Mecca. One is for Muslims only while the other is for non-Muslims. As non-Muslims can’t enter the holy city, this special highway will take you safely around. Taking the wrong turn costs hefty fines or even deportation.
Some city laws in this bullfighting country state that during uneven days of the month, cars must be parked on the side of the road where houses have uneven numbers. For even days, they should be parked on the side of even numbers.
Swiss pedestrians have the right of way, and they expect vehicles to stop as they pass through. Some may even go as far as stepping into the road in front of oncoming traffic.
Before starting their cars, all Danish drivers are required to check under their cars first. This is to check if there’s a person stuck “underneath.”
Splashing a passing pedestrian with muddy rainwater costs a fine of about $65.
