CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Because laws are written by people and people are oftentimes strange, it’s of no surprise that the laws themselves can be weird. Especially automotive law. Holy shit do some of them make no sense!

We all know about the absurdity of the Chicken Tax. I’m looking for bizarre, local automotive laws in your area that the rest of us don’t know about. Like in Golden, Colorado, where a louder-than-stock exhaust could win you a ticket.


So, what’s the deal with your neighborhood? Window tint too dark? Wheels too hellaslammaflushed? Underglow too sick?

Go ahead: rat on your community.
