The strangest road rules in countries

A personal car has long been not a luxury, but simply a means of transportation. And like any ordinary, traveling by car on the roads of different countries is governed by different rules. We will talk about the strongest in this collection.


In Denmark, you should never start a car until you have checked your transport completely. And under the word “fully” Danish law implies that you must look under the car and make sure that there is no sleeping child. Bright country.


In Thailand, local traffic police may be fined for shirtless driving. That law does not tolerate boorish naked body, whether it be a woman or a man.


Mexico is the only country where they included the common sense function and forbade young ladies to paint at the wheel. And so that they were not offended, the men were forbidden to shave.


In the United States, many traffic rules are already outdated, but still in effect. For example, in Pennsylvania, a driver is required to hide a car if it scares a horse.

But in Alabama, an unusual law seems quite reasonable. Drivers are not allowed to drive barefoot. It was not without reason that they came up with such a rule — one driver nearly died from this. The man could not press the brake pedal in time due to the fact that it was too hot.

Well, for dessert — in same Alabama it is forbidden to drive a car with eyes closed.


In the Philippines, they fight traffic jams as they can. Cars with numbers ending in numbers 1 and 2 should not appear on the roads on Mondays, 3 and 4 on Tuesdays, 5 and 6 on Wednesdays, 7 and 8 on Thursdays, and 9 and 0 on Fridays. On weekends, everyone can appear on the roads. Well, that’s it.

Some European countries

In France, Finland, and Spain, motorists are forbidden to use such a miracle of technology as a radar detector. And in Luxembourg, Belgium, and Sweden for a passion for such gadgets you can serve a real prison term (from three months to eight years).

But in Germany, as in Russia, radar detectors are not forbidden. And despite the economic crisis, in 2015 this market did not give up its position and was able to offer motorists, several excellent models.


In Austria there is a law very dubious for drivers — video recorders are officially banned in the country. The use of these devices is considered an interference with privacy.
