Stupid transportation laws

Apologies if this has been posted before, and I can't verify any of them, but assuming they're true....

This is just baffling....

Evanston, Illinois

It is unlawful to change clothes in an automobile with the curtains drawn, except in case of fire.
This would be very beneficial to us....

Redlands, California

Motor vehicles may not drive on city streets unless a man with a lantern is wallking ahead of it.
But this is my favorite....

California State Law

No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.

A fair amount of research is going on over the past decade into autonomous transportation. No doubt the California legislature caught wind of this and saw an opportunity to stifle innovation (in the name of safety, of course). Either that or they were just jealous because Carnegie Mellon beat CalTech in the DARPA Grand Challenge.

The other two just sound like outdated laws that were never taken out of the books...or maybe they were and your source just put them in anyways.

In Seattle, I believe it's illegal to carry a concealed weapon that's more than six feet long.

Well, my bazooka is well under six feet long...

Speaking of which, I think both of those threads have drifted down the page a ways. They could disappear onto page 2 any minute.

Don't worry, I'll bump the original one if and when the time comes, just to spite the people it annoys.

In South Dakota you can actually hunt from your car. You can actually see hillbilly's who replaced their mirrors with wooden platforms to rest their rifles on.
