Weird Laws Around the States

Thursday, March 19, 2015

Traveling in the Unites States can be difficult at times. Though it seems like you are traveling inside your country, it is a whole different story when you cross the state border lines. Each state has different laws and some of them can be outrageous while others you really have to keep your head up for. Some laws might prohibit something that is legal your state. It is a good idea to do your homework and see the different laws for each state and save yourself the trouble. Here are some you should look out for.

Weird Laws Around the States
crazy laws in America
 In Alabama, it is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church, you may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at anytime and masks may not be worn in public. So if you are going to Alabama, make sure not to take any fake moustaches and masks since you wont be able to use them. In Minnesota, it is illegal to sleep naked and a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head. So when you check into a hotel in Minnesota, make sure have something on in your bed, or who knows what will happen.

Well, those are just some states you might go to once in a while, but how about states with major tourist attractions? In California, it is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale, so while this law protects other animals, whales are left out. In Hawaii, all residents may be fined as a result of not owning a boat, but what if you can't afford it? In Nevada, it is still legal to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property, so don't get angry at someone's dog.
In New York, it is illegal to wear slippers after 10:00PM and a fine of $25 can be levied for flirting and again, a person may not walk around on Sundays with an ice cream cone in his/her pocket. It seems like a lot of states enforce the no ice cream in your pocket law so when in doubt, don't put your ice cream in your pocket. In Washington, all lollipops are banned while in Pennsylvania, any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue, so make sure you carry around a lot of rocket signals when you are driving in Pennsylvania.

Though these laws sound ridiculous and seem like a practical joke, these laws are actually written in the book and may be kept enforced if needed to. So make sure you do a lot of research before traveling and don't forget if you are moving to Texas, the entire Encyclopedia Britannica is banned because it contains a formula for making beer at home, so lighten up your load and watch out.
