Blowing the whistle on silly laws

Effective tomorrow, Ohio Revised Code § 4511.56. Signal devices on bicycle will contain the following language:

C) A bicycle may be equipped with a device capable of giving an audible signal, except that a bicycle shall not be equipped with nor shall any person use upon a bicycle any siren or whistle.

Yes, the state is finally putting a stop to such activities! Blowing a whistle while riding a bike, indeed!

Similar to Thomas Woods's comment about the volumes of federal laws and regulations; thank goodness we have ORC 4511.56. One can only imagine the chaos that would ensue should this law be repealed.

So, who says our state representatives don't earn their pay?
