Our pet armadillo is now safe thanks to the ever-so-smart lawmakers:
HB0821 Traffic Safety - Requires that every driver of a motor vehicle exercise due care to avoid collisions with any object in the road or legally placed beside a road; violation is Class C misdemeanor.

Here is the rest of the list of pretty much useless new laws going into effect July 1, 2005.
