Just started this for fun --go to site of your state and have a laugh


The driver of an overtaking motor vehicle not within a business or residence district shall give audible warning with his horn or other warning device before passing or attempting to pass a vehicle proceeding in the same direction.

Do this and you will probably be chased down and beaten...


love this one ----

Well, I've read about the unusual laws in the states, but I don't recall all of them right now, as I'll state this international one -

It is actually illegal to name a pig "Napoleon" in France.

My state has a couple of interesting ones:

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.

Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass.

This one is amusing, but a woman was nailed for this one in the Allentown, PA area after the local newspaper (The Morning Call) ran a story at Easter time a couple of years ago; which showcased her business. If they hadn't run the story, I'm sure she'd still be selling dyed baby chicks at Easter. She did it for years.

I tried to do a search for the archived articles, but was unsuccessful.

Dumb Laws in Wisconsin

Seems they take butter seriously----

As people used to smuggle it in from Illinois, all yellow butter substitute is banned.


Margarine may not be substituted for butter in restaurants unless it is requested by the customer.

At one time, margarine was illegal.


and the topper----
State Law made it illegal to serve apple pie in public restaurants without cheese.

As a man without a State, I'll post a few laws from my Province.


"If you hinder or interrupt the Canadian Forces while they're training or marching, you will be fined $100. Interfering or impending with the recruitment of Canadian Forces carries a fine of $300."

"If you happen upon an injured migratory bird in a Canadian national park, you are required to kill it immediately. If not, you can be fined $300."

"On Ontario highways the horse must have two bells attached to its' harness, or two bells must be fastened to the sleigh. The fine for not obeying this law - $5."

"You cannot release ten or more helium-filled balloons in any City of Toronto park within a 24 hour period."

British Columbia has a specific law that makes it illegal to kill a Sasquatch.
They're very enlightened people on the left coast.

Here's some from my current state of residence: ARKANSAS

- It is illegal for a person to sound the horn on a vehicle at any place where cold drinks or sandwiches are served after 9:00 P.M.

-The Arkansas legislature passed a law that states that the Arkansas River can rise no higher than to the Main Street bridge in Little Rock.

-It is illegal to mispronounce the name of the state of Arkansas while within
the state. (it's AR-CAN-SAW...not AR-KANSAS)

- In Arkansas, it's illegal for a woman getting married for the second time to wear a white wedding gown.

- A man can legally beat his wife, but not more than once a month.


and from my homestate of good ol' TEXAS :

- In Texas, it's illegal to threaten somebody with an UNLOADED gun.

- It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.

- You can't go bare foot without getting a special $5 permit.

- It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. You don't need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.

All cops must have stupid haircuts and bushy mustaches. By law they are also required to wear either really short shorts, or really high boots, but never the two in conjuction with one another.




Fact.
