The 50 Most Insane Driving Laws Around The World

50-driving-laws

There are some wackadoo laws out there for drivers. Who better to make a list of the 50 most bizarre than an international freight shipping company like Barrington Freight?

From driving a car dirty in Russia (“Nyet!”) to a totally bizarre $78 fee for hitting a pedestrian, read some of the more inane rules of the road around our fine, fine world on Huffington Post …

To cap off our Wanderlust content, what could be more fitting than a road trip playlist? Besides a car, gas money, and comfy pants, there’s really nothing more integral to a road trip’s success than a good selection of music. On our recent drive from Oregon to Tennessee, my boyfriend and I didn’t prepare nearly enough music, and we ran out of new tunes somewhere in eastern Wyoming. It was awful. I vowed to never let that happen again, so I polled The Frisky staff for their favorite road trip songs. Some of our selections specifically reference the road trip experience, but most of them are just awesome tunes that match the feeling you get when you see miles and miles of road stretched out in front of you. Check out our Spotify playlist after the jump, and feel free to download it before you hit the open road! Keep reading »

Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee! We got into town last week after a 4-day, 2300-mile road trip with everything we own crammed in the trunk of my Volkswagen Jetta. This was, by far, the longest road trip I’ve ever taken, and the drive itself is something I will never forget. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to sum up the experience, and I think a best/worst list is in order. Read on to get the scoop on Utah sushi, Kansas City kindness, public bathrooms, broken radios, and a quesadilla I will regret for the rest of my life… Keep reading »

Last week, I wrote about a Pendleton plaid satchel that had me yearning to pack it up and hit the road for a fall road trip, and as the leaves have started changing colors, my road trip excitement has increased exponentially. Fall is the perfect time to take a long, lazy drive, because the weather is calm and the scenery is unbelievably gorgeous. Whether your road trip lasts a few hours or a few days, I highly encourage you to take one. Here are 7 things you’ll need to have the best experience possible… Keep reading »

Windows? What windows?

The Mongol Rally is an overland race of epic proportions, aimed at having as much fun and adventure as possible. Since its inception in 2004, the rally has expanded from six teams to nearly 300, with almost 800 competitors — most of whom are male. The main rule of the Mongol Rally is that the car competing must be 1,200 cc’s or less, meaning most teams are riding in total junkers, and some have to literally push their cars over the finish line. Teams typically have two to four members, who take on the daunting (and fun!) task of driving from London to Ulan Baatar, Mongolia. It’s all for fun, and charity. Since its inception, the Mongol Rally has raised nearly $4 million for charitable organizations.

But really, it’s all about having a ridiculous time. Here, the rally team Fast and Curious recounts how they accidentally overturned their car and blew out all their windows. [The Adventurists]
