The Toronto Star's Wheels.ca website has put together a list of ten of the weirdest and most obscure traffic laws the world has to offer. My favourite? In Saudi Arabia, where women are already forbidden to drive, there are roads specifically for Muslim and non-Muslim to drive on.

[Many] don't know that there are two highways near the holy city of Mecca: one for Muslims that runs through the city, and another for non-Muslims that goes around it. If a Muslim is accompanied by a non-Muslim, both are required to use the alternate highway. Violators caught driving on the wrong highway could face fines.

Talk about a strange interpretation of a prophet's teaching from a time when cars didn't even exist.
