Additional Laws to Remember

DO NOT:

  • drive on a sidewalk except when it is part of a driveway
  • back up on any shoulder or roadway of any controlled access highway.  Backing is prohibited unless it is done safely and does not interfere with other vehicles.
  • open doors on the side of a vehicle on which traffic is moving unless it can be done safely.  The door may remain open only long enough to load and unload passengers.
  • wear a headset while driving.  Headsets are defined as any device, other than a hearing aid, that allows the wearer to hear or receive electronic communications.  Motorcycle, motor-driven cycle and moped operators may use intercom helmets that permit drivers and/or passengers to speak to one another.
  • drive onto a railroad crossing, enter an intersection or drive within a marked crosswalk unless there is enough space to allow passage of other vehicles, pedestrians or railroad trains.
  • tow one vehicle with another except by a drawbar.  In most cases, the distance between the two cars should not exceed 15 feet.  A towed vehicle also should be coupled to the towing vehicle with 2 chains or cables.
  • remove a wrecked or damaged vehicle from the roadway without removing all glass and other debris.
  • overload a vehicle with passengers or freight so the driver's view is obstructed.  No more than three persons should ride in the front seat of a vehicle.
  • ride in a house trailer while it is being moved on a street or highway.
  • operate or permit to be operated any sound system (radio, tape player or disc player) at a volume that can be heard 75 feet or more from a vehicle being driven.
