Some driving laws are very clear; others, not so much. To this end, Jalopnik wants everyone to know that the following three automotive practices are perfectly legal, despite misinformed beliefs to the contrary:
- Driving barefoot. No state actually has any laws making barefoot driving illegal, so don’t take any guff from people trying to tell you it’s against the law. Your feet are not criminals—they’re just the hands of your legs, and if they want to serve you foot-glove-less, you can legally let them.
- Driving with the interior dome light on. Sure, having the interior light on inside the car can impair your vision out of the car at night, but there are no actual laws on the books that say it’s illegal.
- Driving with rear windows rolled down all the way. No, these windows don't roll down all the way because of some child-safety law that's on the books. They don't roll down all the way because of lazy wheel-arch engineering that doesn't leave enough room for windows to roll down all the way on rear doors.
