These are some of the funniest road rules floating about the internet. When the first horseless carriages hit the roads these were the driving etiquette they were obliged to follow:
- Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass. If the horses appear skittish, the motorist must take his car apart, piece by piece, and hide it under the nearest bushes.
- Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.
- Motorized vehicles are not to be sold on Sundays.
