Where is it illegal to run out of gas?
- Youngstown, Ohio
I doubt that anyone would intentionally run out of gas while driving. Nonetheless, a law was passed in Youngstown, Ohio stating to running out of gas on the road is a misdemeanor offense. As if running out of gas wasn't bad enough, you could also end up with a ticket. The penalty for this offense is a “minor misdemeanor,” which means that an individual could pay a fine of up to $150 if convicted. Not a lot, but certainly a bit more than a tank of gas. Better double-check your fuel gauge before heading out on a trip in Ohio!
