Strange Traffic Laws

Driving a vehicle is a huge responsibility which is why driving laws have been written to keep us safe. We all know the basic laws such as, drive on the right side of the road but what if someone told you in Alabama it is illegal to drive with a blindfold on. This law may seem like common sense but it is an actual written law in Alabama. Here are a few strange traffic laws, some out of date, but still in the books.
