Top 10 Strange Laws
The United States is a great country, built on a solid foundation of basic legal rights and responsibilities for every citizen. But among America’s many laws and regulations are some of the weirdest rules we’ve ever heard of! Here’s KW’s list of the Top 10 Oddest American Laws.
- It’s illegal to hunt camels in the state of Arizona.
Considering there are NO wild camels in the state of Arizona, this law would be pretty hard to break.
- Only babies can ride in baby carriages in the state of West Virginia.
Sorry to ruin your fun, but you’re gonna have to find some other way to get around this part of the country.
- People are prohibited from riding a public streetcar within four hours of eating garlic in Gary, Indiana.
Well, this is just common courtesy. Funky breath would ruin anyone’s night out.
- Men can’t be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown in Miami, Florida.
Sorry guys, but you’ll just have to leave your sequined ball gown at home. I’m sure you’ll find another event to wear it to.
- It’s illegal to shoot a rabbit from a moving trolley car.
Please get off the trolley or wait for it to come to a complete stop, then fire away.
- Virginia state’s Code of 1930 includes a statute prohibiting corrupt practices or bribery by anyone other than political candidates.
Apparently politicians in all part of the country have picked up on this, too.
- In the state of Georgia, it’s illegal to change the clothes on a storefront mannequin unless the shades are down.
Mannequins need their privacy, too, ya know.
- You can’t take a French poodle to the opera in Chicago, Illinois.
We heard poodles prefer rock concerts, anyway.
- Birds have the right of way on all highways in Utah.
If you’re not sure who got to the intersection first, let the bird go before you.
- In Pennsylvania it’s against the law to sleep in your refrigerator.
If you’re still doing this on the low, it may be time to buy a fan.
