In Germany it is an illegal offence to run out of gas when you are on the autobahn. This does sound a bit crazy, but then you realize that parts of it have no speed limit, so there is a safety side to this law. Source: http://www.ehow.com/facts_4914306_facts-autobahn.html

3.Turkey

In Turkey they have a law that states it is illegal for a man who is older than 80 years old to become a pilot.
