    I will admit that I frequently travel at a speed over the posted speed limit. I'll go up to 10MPH over. If I were to actually drive the posted 60MPH, I fear I would be run over. Trust me, I've tried driving the speed limit. Way too scary on the freeway. Around town, it is no problem.

    Forget to use your turn signal...

    Xerox copyrighted material, like a magazine article or a passage from a book...

    Cut the corner through a parking lot...

    Pass in the right lane...

    Smoke within 15' of the entrance of a public building...

    Tear the tags off your mattresses and pillows...;-)

    I have an Accugroove cab with an Acmeswitch. I break the laws of physics on a daily basis! :D

    Seriously, the transfer of CDs to MP3 is still illegal (breach of copyright) in Australia as we have no "fair use" law like in the US.

    Other than that, not too many on a daily basis - speeding in the car a little...thats about it.
  7. there are some strange laws that you can easily break though.

    in australia, for example, its illegal to walk around without money on your person.:eyebrow:

    I'm a big jaywalker, I rarely do it when I could be interfering with cars trying to drive though.

    I also speed, roll through some stopsigns, don't use my turn signal half the time.

    I'll litter if there's garbage can around me.

    I used to drink illegally when I was under 18. But now that's over.

    Disturbing the peace by jamming at 11:30 at night at really high volumes, although everyone seems to like our music since there haven't been any complaints.

    I'm pretty sure I break a couple hundred religious laws every day on average.
  13. Aside from the MP3 downloading, looking up lyrics is becoming illegal too.

    Damm if I was in Australia I would get the electric chair!!!!
  15. Amen. Not going to start listing..
  16. :D Well, its a bit like jaywalking - they don't actually go after people with no money on them, it's just a way for the police to be able to remove vagrants from the streets if need be.

    Maybe not every day(at least not anymore) but there was a time when I would commit a murder or two.
