The Most Ridiculous Laws in the US

Yesterday, while I was doing some more planning for our US East Coast Trip, we started talking about laws in the US and I remembered that I read about some really really strange laws ones. That inspired me to check them out! Prepare yourself for loads of laughing and fun b/c here comes my Top 10 list of the most ridiculous laws in the US:

  • Alabama: It is forbidden to wear a false mustache in church if this could result in laughter
  • Alabama: Men are only allowed to bash their wife with a cane that is not bigger than her thumb
  • Connecticut: In Hartford, you are not allowed to cross the street walking on your hands
  • Illinois: It is not allowed to fish while sitting on the throat of a giraffe
  • California: It is forbidden to eat an orange in the bath tub
  • Louisiana: Bank robbers are not allowed to shoot with water pistols
  • Maryland: It is not allowed to bring a lion into the cinema
  • Nevada: It is not permitted to chase a camel over the highway
  • New Jersey: During fishing season, men are not allowed to knit
  • Pennsylvania: If a driver of a car sees a horse on the road he has to pull over, cover his car with a camouflage blanket and let the horse pass by.

I can’t wait to learn more about the US before we go there and while we are there! I love going there and I really love the people over there but some things in the US are just a bit weird and hard to understand. I also wonder if there are any strange laws here in Europe as well that we just don’t know of… Does anybody have any knowledge about that? Please share, I am curious!

Have a great weekend everybody!!!

  1. Here some English ones:
    – It is illegal to be drunk on Licensed Premises (in a pub or bar).
    – If a steam locomotive is driven on roads, a man must walk in front of the vehicle with a red flag during the day and a red lantern at night to warn passersby.
    – Placing a postage stamp that bears the Queen (or King) upside down is considered treason.
    – In Chester, you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.
    – In Liverpool, it is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.
    – In York, excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.


  2. This reminds me how an Australian roommate of mine didn’t believe me and my friends when we said you can’t drink alcohol in the car even if someone else is driving. She really thought we were trying to make her look like an idiot. lol. We were just trying not to get a ticket! Have a great trip!!


    • Coming from Germany where it is allowed to drink alcohol basically everywhere (what would a german be without their beer???), this also sounds weird to me. :-) thanks for sharing this as well and good to know for our trip next week! :-)


      • lol thats how I feel when I go to Europe and I can take my drink outside of the pub. I know it’s ok but it still makes me nervous! lol. Have a great trip!
