Silly Laws Around the U.S.A. - What Were They Thinking?

In Hartford, Connecticut you cant plant a tree in the street.

Detroit, Michigan law prevents you from loitering in the city morgue.

Minnesota is quite meticulous with their tax forms. They ask for your date of death.

Did you know in San Francisco you cant use old underwear to wipe off the cars at a carwash?

All you garment workers will be happy to know that under Federal Law you can now make mittens in your own home.

New York has a law on the books that states that its illegal to do anything that is against the law.

If youre planning a trip to Joliet, Illinois, make sure you know how to properly pronounce the name of the city. If you mispronounce the citys name you could be subject to a $500 fine.

Dwarf tossing, the bizarre practice of hurling dwarfs in padded suits, is outlawed in the bars of Springfield, Illinois. However, you may be able to practice it elsewhere in town with a special permit.

In Provincetown, Massachusetts, its illegal to sell suntan oil before noon on a Sunday.

In most towns across the United States you need a permit to open a barbershop, but in Christianburg, Virginia, they took it one step further. Your permit will be revoked if you run a barbershop without a permit.

In Los Angeles you cant give a bath to two babies at the same time in the same bathtub.

Ladies if you are in Miami dont wear a strapless gown. Its illegal there!

In Oxford, Ohio, a woman cannot get undressed in front of a mans picture.

If youre going to be driving through the amazing countryside in Pennsylvania, make sure you have a lot of flares. According to Pennsylvania law, "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 any livestock, and then continue."

In Kentucky, "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she is armed with a club." This law was recently amended to include: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds nor shall it apply to female horses."
