Stupid Motorist Law Law and Legal Definition
Stupid motorist law means a motorist is charged for the cost of his/her rescue when s/he becomes stranded after driving around barricades to enter a flooded stretch of road. This law was required because there were lack of adequate drainage system in the Southwestern U.S. which inturn lead to short term flooding.
Stupid motorist law makes motorist pay for their own rescue. For example, if a motorist uses public emergency service like fire station, the cost of the services are born by the motorist.
