A couple weeks back, a friend of mine got a $500 ticket for a driving violation I had never even heard of. Granted, I’m not a very frequent driver, but I doubt that all of us know every driving rule out there.
Are there any driving rules or regulations that you’ve slipped up on over and over- or been surprised by? Share them as part of this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration challenge! You may just spare some readers a couple of unnecessary tickets and visits to traffic school.
Don’t have a particular Hub in mind? Here are some search-friendly titles to consider using (they reflect common traffic rule-related searches people conduct):
New Driving Laws
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for Dummies
Drivers License Requirements
Important Driving Signs You Must Know
10 Lesser Known Driving Rules
The X Most Commonly Broken Driving Laws
Driving Quiz: Test Your Knowledge of Driving Rules
Weird California Driving Laws
Practice Driving Test - Be Prepared!
The Best Online Driving Test Sites
Sample Driving Test Questions
How to Prep for the MVA Driving Test
The X Best Free Driving Test Resources
To create search-friendly titles of your own, follow the steps outlined in this Learning Center guide.
If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
2) Click the green button "answer this question".
3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens
5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.

Oh, and do you want your WTI Hub to have a shot at becoming a Hub of the Day? Make sure the images are legally used and properly attributed!
I was inspired again, here's my quiz
http://zsobig.hubpages.com/hub/Driving- … -Knowledge
Sadly, I was unable to attach the pictures to the questions, but I've added them in the next capsule - hopefully it is good this way too!
Please write to me, if you find any mistake! Thank you!
Love it! And choosing the thumbnail option for images that correspond to questions is the next best option. This is a fabulous Hub!
The quiz is a fun idea. I was stumped with the first question!
I don't drive a lot these days, but when I do drive, I see a lot of people breaking driving rules. Perhaps, they are unaware of these rules. My hub is titled, "10 Lesser Known Driving Rules". http://marleneb.hubpages.com/t/32ab9b
Oooh, I'm so glad you mentioned the rule about entering intersections! They really pushed that one when I was first taking classes to get my license as a teen, and it always gets my goat when people break it. Great Hub!
Thanks, Simone. I put in the one about entering into the intersection because I had a friend who kept doing that saying, "As long as you are already in the intersection when the light turns red, you are OK." Obviously, she doesn't know the rules.
I actually had a lot of fun writing a hub about this - http://giblingirl.hubpages.com/hub/Unus … Know?done.
This article will give you an idea of just how unusual, and sometimes ridiculous, the rules of the road are.
Wow, I'll have to watch my potty mouth in Maryland! This is such a fun Hub. I'm so glad you took the 'odd driving rules' approach- I was really hoping someone would do that!
I wonder who writes all those silly laws and why people pass them in the first place. This is a fun hub to read.
What a marvelous topic, and too bad for your friend's ticket. Ouch!!!
Oh, hurray! I was already planning a hub on this topic. I have an interview with the Senior Traffic Law Officer for my state on Friday and then I'll get crackin'. What fun!

Neat! If I go to India... I think I might just walk everywhere.
Here's my hub for this week...

Another great WTI Hub! I'm glad you participated this week, Rosyel Sawali.
Ah, ha, ha, ha! That was a fun hub to read with fun videos to boot. Wonderful hub with a great experience.
I just posted my first ever Weekly Topic Inspiration: http://cam8510.hubpages.com/hub/Obscure … -no-excuse
The title of my hub is "To Turn Left on Red or Not to Turn Left? That is the Question." I had heard for a long time that there was a regulation dealing with turning left on a red light, much like we turn right on a red light. I had just never tried it. I was with a friend a few years ago who pulled this off with confidence. It was impressive. I began doing it as well. It really does help move traffic along. I want traffic to move along. That is why I wrote this hub.
Welcome to the WTI crew! I'm so glad you're joining in. Thanks for addressing the left-on-red issue!
I live in California and have only turned left at the red light one time. Your diagrams of how to use the rules legally are excellent visuals.
Here's my contribution for the week
http://cashmere.hubpages.com/hub/Left-o … drive?done
Ooooh- history!! This one is fascinating!!! Thanks for the awesome Hub, cashmere!
I enjoyed your hub a lot. By the way, your last sentence seems to have gotten cut off in the middle of the sentence.
I gave this topic a shot - http://austinstar.hubpages.com/hub/The- … iving-Laws
I can't post this as an answer to the question since it was in process prior to in response to another question but thought I'd share it here. I'll be curious if I'm the only one that feels this way.

We saw some great driving Hubs this week. Big thanks to everyone who participated!
Our new Weekly Topic Inspiration theme focuses on the challenge of paying for college- just in time for school!
Just as you shared your great driving tips last week, I hope you'll take some time this week to share the lessons you've learned about paying for college educations.
