      This is pure diversion but I came across set of rules regarding the use of automobiles on country roads suggested by the pre-world war 1 Farmers Anti Automobile Society of Pennsylvania. Here are my favourite two:

      *If the driver of an automobile sees a team of horses approaching, he is to stop, pulling over to one side of the road, and cover his machine with a blanket or dust cover which is painted or colored to blend into the scenery, and thus render the machine less noticeable.

      *In case a horse is unwilling to pass an automobile on the road, the driver of the car must take the machine apart as rapidly as possible and conceal the parts in the bushes.

      Jim — You obviously have too much time on your hands and insufficient good reading. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Tradhunter– in the case of illegal ATVs, not “fines” but “drawn and quartered on the spot.” ๐Ÿ˜ˆ I’ve tried it but unfortunately the resulting mess is so tainted with gasoline fumes it doesn’t even make good bear bait.

      Dave, no word of a lie (or spin) I just finished reading the replies to this post, including yours, and the post man beeped his horn out the front and he delivered this:

      So if you’ll excuse me, I have some sufficiently good reading to do ๐Ÿ˜‰
