When you get your license, you’re expected to follow the rules of the road. While most of us follow these rules, with the exception of the accidental lead foot, there might be some laws you didn’t know existed. These laws are some of the weirdest rules that make you wonder, “How did that law come about?” Join us today as we take a look at some of the weirdest driving laws in Canada!

Make sure you aren’t breaking these strange laws

  1. In Saskatchewan, it is illegal to hold on to a moving vehicle on the highway. So, if you were planning on embracing your inner Marty McFly, you might want to live out that dream in your head.
  2. In Ontario, drivers cannot race against horses or other animals on the highway. While we aren’t sure when this situation would occur, try not to “out run” Old McDonald’s farm.
  3. When driving a sleigh, you must have at least two bells. Another weird law from Ontario, if you plan on taking your sleigh out on a run, make sure you have enough bells. We’ll make sure to pass on this information to Santa.
  4. In Halifax, taxi drivers cannot wear t-shirts while on duty. This may be one of the few instance where the fashion police is real. However, we bet Halifax taxi drivers are always looking their best.
  5. Driving barefoot is legal. While this isn’t necessarily a law but breaking a myth, we’re sure you have some friends or relatives who are happy to hear going barefoot isn’t illegal. We do recommend wearing shoes when you have passengers though.
