Plenty of drunk southern rednecks around my place in VA do the same dang thing.
It really pisses me off to see you guys keep posting "X" is against the law.

FOR ABOUT THE HUNDREDTH TIME, THE LAW DOESNT MATTER, LAZY COPS don't ENFORCE IT, SLOB HUNTERS don't FOLLOW IT.

All I can tell you Joe is one man one vote. Vote the sheriff out and a new one in. If that don't work then do it again in four years. Repeat as necessary.

This post was originally started about trail riding etiquette, so I have an etiquette question. I ride alone, down the gravel road, in the ditch where I can. What are the rules about cars? I have been told that each state has their own rules, but who knows them? I was never taught in driver's ed, nor can I find anything out about this for my state.

As far as hunting here in MN, so much of what I have read is true to both sides. I don't ride during hunting season because of those very few overzealous people, no matter how few. It's just not worth it to me.

I hear about all the "colors" being worn, has anybody worn bells to alert hunters? There was a rage about rythym beads during hunting season, but I don't think they are loud enough.

You are right about the traffic laws, in VA cars are required to slow down, and there is actually a law on how many feet they are required to move over to pass. Can't find the actual code to quote for you .But as stated earlier. All the laws in the world are worthless if cops don't enforce them.

How can they enforce them if nobody reports them? I'm too busy trying to keep my horse from bolting instead of trying to read the license plate as they go by

Yeah, every state is different. Think it has since been removed from the books now but no more then 20 years ago in one state, a motorist was required to stop, dismantle their car and carry it past a horse if it spooked.

In Oregon everything yields to horses but you wont find that in our drivers book either. Unfortunately it is buried in the regs but where you find the signs are on state park multi use trails. You might try your states park services and see if they can direct you to the proper regulation.

Not sure about the law but think Mass times velocity squared.

A car is bigger, faster, heavier and metal.

Best thing to do is stay out of their way.

Most people around here will slow down and let you go by. Occasionally there will be a jerk that practically runs you over. One guy deliberately tried to run me down on a narrow road with steep sides that kept me from getting off the road. I showed him my .38 and he changed his mind. It still goes back to the mass times velocity squared thing. Anybody know the momentum of a .38 bullet moving toward a truck? Don't worry, I didn't shoot him.
