    Fake

    These laws aren't even true! It says in New Jersey that you cant pump your own gas, but my dad does that all the time in front of the gas station workers and he doesnt get caught. It also says that you cant place an elephant in an eletric oven. Who would do that anyway? It also says that in another state that a fire truck cant drive faster than 25mph. Thats just plain dangerous. Another law says you can drive the wrong way on a one way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your car. Its like the people that make these laws want their citizens to get killed. Do not get this book. The author made up fake laws. Do not waste your money on this book. Dont even get the free sample.

    To "Fake"

    It says that the some of these laws are old and no longer in use. They are not fake.

    A lot of these laws are outdated and no longer in effect.

    Many of the laws listed here are simply not true. One only has to look at the state code and see that they are not in the books anywhere. Conversely, some of the laws listed for specific states are laws everywhere; for example the Alaska law that it is illegal to exit a moving vehicle is a law in most if not all states. Little actual research was put into making this book. Still, it is mildly entertaining.
