You Are Probably Breaking This New Jersey Law Everyday
I think it is safe to say that none of us are perfect drivers. However, there is one law we are all definitely breaking. Even if you have no tickets, no accidents, and consider yourself the perfect driver, you are most likely breaking this law.
There are many laws out there that make us scratch our heads. What's even better is that we keep these dumb laws for no reason, even if they are extremely outdated. New Jersey is no stranger to weird and dumb laws. This driving law may have made sense back in the day, but now it will just cause a headache. When I say headache, I mean a legitimate headache not a figurative one.
Did you know you are supposed to honk your horn every time you pass someone? This is not limited to other vehicles, but also skateboarders, roller skaters, and cyclists. Can you imagine the noise pollution we would have if everyone did this? Traffic jams would be much, much worse.
So unless you honk your horn every time you pass someone, you are breaking the law. This law was put into place back 90 years ago in 1928. However, it is still in the books today. As a person who never honks her horn, I would be pilling up the tickets if this law was enforced.
