Things you didn't know were against the law

I came across this article on discussing unusual traffic laws. For example, in many states, even where there is no posted minimum speed limit, you can be cited for going too slowly. Or in Texas, the "stop line" for determining whether you ran a red light is determined by the location of the curb of the cross street, not the line painted on the street indicating where you should stop. But some of my favorites are in the section labeled "Ridiculous" at the bottom of the article. Did you know that in California it is illegal for a vehicle without a driver to travel at more than 60 miles per hour? Or how about that it is illegal for a sheep to ride in the cab of a truck in Montana without a chaperon? And in Tennessee, it is illegal to shoot any game other than whales from a moving vehicle. You would think that the legislatures would have had better things to do...
