Bows and arrows!

A guy shooting an arrow
While studying the Oregon Driver's Manual I found this rather interesting bit on page 53 concerning weapons:

"Never discharge a firearm, bow and arrow, or other weapon across a highway. Only police officers in the line of duty are extempt from this law."

It seems pretty reasonable to me. What I find so funny is that they felt it necessary to mention bows and arrows. Whoever uses those outside of recreation? I wonder what happened to make them decide to mention anything other than guns under the discussion of what people aren't allowed to do with weapons.

By the way, on the topic of driving, I have discovered the joy in bringing the car to a perfect stop. Not too quickly, not too slowly, but just right so that I hardly even feel it. It's a real art. :)

Some people do still hunt deer and such with bows and arrows, so perhaps that's who the training manual has in mind.

Glad to hear your driving lessons are coming along so well!

Hmm, I hadn't thought of that.
