Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Pulled Over in Wisconsin
When you're driving a 27 foot wiener on wheels, it's safe to say you're a pretty obvious site on the road. And just because you're in the famous Oscar Mayer mobile doesn't mean you're immune from the law. The driver of an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was stopped by a sheriff's deputy in Waukesha County and given a verbal warning for not following the Wisconsin's Move Over Law.

They are required to slow their vehicle, maintain a safe speed for traffic conditions, and drive at a reduced speed until completely past the vehicle.
A good reminder for Wienermobiles and all!
