It's illegal for a woman to drive in a housecoat in California, one web site says. But a computer search of California's Vehicle Code shows no mention of housecoat. Bad info.
The same site says you'll get a traffic ticket if you shoot an animal (except a whale) from a moving vehicle in California. The Vehicle Code doesn't mention whales. The only shooting it prohibits is taking potshots at traffic signals and the like.
Where do they get this stuff?
Third time's the charm. This site says you have to honk when passing a car in Rhode Island either on the left or the right. Actually, that one's partially true. Incredibly Title 31, section 15-4-(1) of the Rhode Island statutes spells it out--but only when passing on the left.
