Red cars are forbidden in Shanghai, China (they attract more accidents.)
 
Radar detectors are forbidden in Switzerland.  Fines are based on a person's income and prison is possible.
 
Loud music emanating from a car in Australia (can be heard 50 meters or 164 feet) warrants a $200 AUD fine ($128 USD.)  We have a similar law which is rarely enforced.
 
Driving with one hand is forbidden in Cyprus.
 
Running out of gas will get you a $75 fine in Germany.
 
If you live in Thailand you cannot drive a car without a shirt.  (no shirt, no shoes, no drive)
 
In Dubai camels have the right-of-way.
 
Using car horns is forbidden in parts of India (congested urban areas.)
 
Diesel cars are forbidden in Athens, Greece (they cause smog.)
