It's the Law? Traffic Rules that May Surprise You

Where do quirky-sounding traffic laws come from? It's impossible to say in every case. City and state traffic codes are full of laws and ordinances that don't always make sense at first glance. "Constituents can go to their legislators and request new laws," says Duane Kokesch, director of the National Traffic Law Center. "If it matters only to a few constituents, legislators may pass the law without any opposition." Other laws have become outmoded, Kokesch explains, and removing them from the books may not be seen as worth the trouble.
