Yes.. My country does have this law. Shara, can you imagine, people commiting crimes and when they are caught claim that they were not aware of such rule.. What will happen then? I strongly feel this is good, if the govt. needs to keep the people on their toe.. I was once, several years back, was caught for a traffic offence and was fined in a sub-court. (Infact the error was not mine. The vechile mechanic after doing some repair to my car failed to fix up the rear light. As a owner I had the responsiblity to ensure that my vechile was in order b4 I took on the road.) Bad luck I guess.

i'm prety much sure that it is stated every where .... that includes mine ...and to be honest with you that is a really silly excuse you can give to deffend your self befir a court...claiming you didn't knoe it was wrong ... Better if someone comes up with something.

I agree with it. If you can not be bothered to educate yourself on the laws where you live then you have no one to blame but yourself.
