* Children may no longer ride in a towed watercraft (on the highway) (dogs
evidently okay) [anti-redneck law]
* Minors sending nekkid pics of themselves now face only misdemeanor
charges, unless in a "dating relationship" in which case there is no penalty
(but that's how girls GET into a "dating relationship"! Jeeze!) [another
* Use of caltrops is now prohibited (those spikey things that look like
children's jacks used to deflate tires of pursuing vehicles)
* You can use your Concealed Handgun License as official identification when

* Anyone can now carry a firearm in a boat, as long as it's in plain view

I learned how to put LEOs at ease 50 yrs ago. If you get pulled over,
roll down your window and put both hands on the window sill, like
you're gonna open the door. Puts 'em at ease cuz it shows them you
have nothing in your hands. In fact, you might actually open the door
a tad, in which case they will probably say, "Remain in the car,
please". This is better cuz it looks like your a first-time violator

Just don't know.
I misread the law on boats and guns. You can have a gun in your boat if it

Wife: "Honey, run to the market and pick up a carton of milk. If they have
eggs, bring back a dozen."

Wife: "Why did you buy a dozen cartons of milk?!"
Husband: "They had eggs."
The new limit will be the result of "studies" conducted by people who
conduct studies and will probably apply only to desolate sections of
interstate highways. For the rest, the limit will be 70 or 75 mph.
Best guess is your guess will end up being correct.
