But officer, his wheels were moving, I swear!
There is a small article in the WSJ today mentioning that New York, Iowa and Virginia have (or have had) proposed legislation to ban spinners on car wheels, on the grounds that they are distracting and may cause confusion at intersections. I think if you're too stupid to be able to look at a car (hello, the whole car, they're kinda big?) and tell whether it's moving or not then you're too stupid to have a driver's license. And of course you have those handy dandy road signals to help you out, too. Jeez. Wouldn't want anyone to actually engage their brain whilst driving, now would we?
I know--it's bad for people's self-esteem! They see the spinners and think the car is moving. When they realize it isn't moving after all they cry boo hoo! I got tricked! That mean person made me feel bad! Obviously we need to legislate that cruel and unusual experience out of existence, so they can go find something else to whine about.
