I stumbled upon a list of seven incredibly ridiculous traffic laws that are real, well, according to Yahoo. Sometimes it seems like these things only exist on the Internet, but they've been copied-and-pasted so many times people believe they're real.  Anyway, let's not let our jaded skepticism ruin something this stupid. Here are seven U.S. traffic laws that are real, as far as we know:

1)  If you're convicted of a DUI in New Jersey, you're permanently banned from getting a personalized vanity license plate.  (So getting plates that say "LUSH" is completely out of the question.)

2) It's illegal to ride a camel on the highway in Nevada.  (But side streets are just fine.)

3) It's illegal to drive barefoot in Alabama.  (Funny, since I've heard that most people in Alabama don't have or wear shoes!)

4) It's illegal to drive with a gorilla in your backseat in Massachusetts.  (What about an ape or baboon?)

5) If you tie an elephant to a parking meter in Florida, you have to pay the meter just like you would for a car.  (That's just nuts... peanuts!)

6) It's illegal to wipe your car with used underwear in San Francisco. (I guess clean underwear is okay.)

7) It's illegal to drive naked in Sag Harbor, New York. (Leave the sagging to the harbor, right?)
