In Canada, it's illegal to drive a car without your ownership paper IN the car. Even if you leave it at home, they will give you the same $350 ticket.

I mean, yeah...I stole that car, and will make an excuse that I left the paper at home!!! Police are smarter than that...come on!

In some countries, law is a way of money making. Qatar, for example earns millions of riyals (1$ = 3.64 Qatari Riyal) from the fine of traffic violation. Because heavy fines for speeding is not a deterrent at all; young Qataris budget a handsome amount of money to pay for monthly traffic violation ; as if it is something like water-electricity or telephone bill

I have heard pretty interesting stories about the autobahn. I know a guy who drove there and according to him, its something you will never forget.

Anyways I saw on a commercial that in New York doing a window puppet show is illegal!!

Funny thing is the accident rate is much much lower than USA. 1st reason is they don't give license to 16 year olds. And people r very careful cause they know some one is driving over 130 m.. I was in a BMW which drove almost in its full limit. (It is in Killo so i don't remember how much was it) and i took the picture of the speed meter where the pointer is at the very end... even in that speed we had to give pass to a porche which just flew by us...

I think the main problem is the yellow plate cars. German plates r white but when you see a yellow one that means they came from Holland and they drive like novice and German drivers get cautious automatically...
I also drove in the racing road where F1 races take places with the BMW in weekend. had to pay 45 mark which is around 20 dollars for one round... but it was price less....

We all know this funny law, misplacement of comma.

Ei khane ......koriben, na korile 500 taka jorimana dite hobe

instead of, ei khane .....koriben na, korile 500 taka jorimana dite hobe
