Stupid Law of the Day

From Reason. Apparently I'm a criminal in Holland:

The Dutch Secretary of Transportation, Karla Peijs, has decreed that loose objects are no longer allowed in Dutch cars, as everything that isn't tied down might become a projectile in the event of crash. So starting next January, drivers unlucky enough to be caught with an open glove compartment, a handbag on the floor, or an unsecured book on the backseat, will face hefty fines.


  • from my experience of holland, this shouldn't be a problem. anything loose the dutch have rolling around their cars clearly gets tossed straight into the canals.
