If you’re planning a trip to another country and intend to do any driving there, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the traffic laws in that country. What’s legal where you normally drive, may not be legal in another country and – as we often hear cops and judges say – ignorance is no excuse to break the law. What one might think is an easy transition from driving in the U.S. to driving in the U.K. can be a challenge, just due to the fact that in the U.S. we drive on the right side of the road and in the U.K. they drive on the left side. Old habits can be hard to break, so it’s best to remain very focused when driving in an unfamiliar place. Making matters worse, there are some very silly traffic laws on the books in various locations around the world. Here are a few of the silliest we discovered.
