    Some are a bit of a stretch:


    This isn't exactly true. What it does say is (no quoted, but):
    1) Listed on the acceptible uses for a car horn (ie. legal reasons to blow your horn), to alert another motorist that you are passing them is listed. Again, this just means that you can LEGALLY blow your horn in this scenario.
    2) In another portion there is a statement that if a vehicle blocking a throughway in such a way as you have to exit the normal lane to pass (ie the shoulder or on coming lane), that you legally required to signal and sound your horn.


    So, some are stretched a bit for comedic effect it seems.

    Don, yeah, thats' about the dumbest of them all.

    Anothe favorite of mine is from Texas, it's something to the effect of "If two trains are going in opposite directions on the same track and are in each other's way, both shall come to a complete stop and neither shall proceed until the other has passed."

    In Ohio you can be ticketed for leaving your keys in your car. And you can be ticketed for blowing your horn in downtown Cincy.
