Crazy laws in the United states

Crazy laws in the United states

Did you know that in Virginia you can’t go trick or treating if you’re over 14 years old? This is only one of the many crazy laws in the United States. 

Another is that in Alabama, it’s illegal to drive blindfolded, why? The next is from Arizona, where it is illegal for a donkey to sleep in a bathtub, we all knew this law existed right? If you like honking your horn near sandwich shops then hear this: in Arkansas, you can’t honk your horn near a sandwich shop after 9 p.m. If you like Dunkin’ Donuts and want to park in front of one, then you should not be living in Maine as there, it is illegal to do so. If you like to give surprise pizzas to people, then Louisiana is a no-go for you. For the outdoorsy people: Colorado may be a bad place for you as it’s illegal to keep a couch on your porch due to some rowdy people burning couches outside. However, if anyone can agree that a law is weird, then the law in Connecticut that a pickle must be able to bounce may be the best weird law. In Indiana, it’s illegal to ride a horse above 10 MPH, and in Rhode Island, it’s illegal to race a horse on a highway so don’t ride horses on highways! In Hawaii, it is illegal to place a coin in an ear, so no magic tricks over there. Bear wrestling is banned in Missouri. In Montana, it’s illegal to give a rat as a present, so if you don’t like rats, then go there. Bullet-proof vests are banned while committing crimes in New Jersey so wearing one would be committing two crimes at once. In South Dakota, it’s illegal to sleep in a cheese factory, as it would stop workers from keeping the cheese rolling in. In West Virginia, hats are banned in theaters since it blocks the view of others, which makes sense. In Wyoming, buildings that cost over $100,000 must display pricey art, making the building cost even more. 

This is just a small percentage of the many crazy laws in the US…
