California is full of crazy things.
But some things are crazier than most. These 11 laws are some of those crazier things.
11 Bizarre California Driving Laws
1) In the state of California, no vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
Under 60 miles an hour, though, is just fine.
2) In Arcadia, California, peacocks have the right of way to cross any street, including driveways.
Fortunately, this rule does not apply to jaywalking jayhawks.
3) In Temecula, California, ducks have the right of way to cross Rancho California St.
On any other street, they have to use the crosswalk like the rest of us.
4) In Eureka, California, it is illegal to use a road as a bed.
And camouflage does not make it OK.
5) In Chico, California, driving a herd of cattle down a street is against the law.
Cows tend to get spooked when they pass an In-N-Out Burger.
6) In Hermosa Beach, California, it is illegal to pour salt on a highway.
To properly season your roadkill, you must first take it home.
7) In Norco, California, vehicles may not contain sound systems which allow someone to hear noise outside the vehicle.
Does that mean every car in Norco comes with earbuds?
8) In Redlands, California, a motor vehicle may not drive on city streets unless a man with a lantern is walking ahead of it.
Would you settle for this gnome as a hood ornament?
9) In Glendale, California, it is illegal to jump from a car at 65 mph.
You know, I was going to, but now that you mention it…
10) It is also illegal in Glendale to jump into a passing car.
How are professional stuntmen supposed to get around in this town?
11) Finally, it is illegal in Glendale to drive a car in reverse.
You can’t tell, but he’s going toward that mountain in the distance.
