Er, did you miss the post about the Rowinsky trial? This law is
regularly enforced in Cambridge and other places (and by enforcement, I
mean that the police will pull you over and harass you for doing it.
And maybe, if you disagree with them, they might arrest you...)
Our society runs on laws, like it or not that's the way it is. Good
laws should be respected as much as possible, while bad ones should be
challenged and removed!

seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must
pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means." - Martin Luther King Jr.
