A “donkey law” which is an ass

“An ancient law banning an English town from holding a market because
it is less than “a donkey ride” away from one in a rival town, was
branded an ass Tuesday.

The centuries-old law is used by residents of South Shields near
Newcastle in northeastern England to prevent their neighbours in North
Shields — just on the other side of the Tyne river — from setting up
a market.”
