Outlandish State Laws – California

I have not verified the veracity of these, but thought they were just outlandish enough to be true. My source is the website, http://www.legal-forms-kit.com/legal-jokes/dumb-laws.html.

Here is a sample of some of the laws apparently on the books in California:

  • Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.
  • It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.
  • No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
  • Many animals are illegal to own as pets, including snails, sloths, and elephants.
  • Nobody is allowed to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool.
  • It is illegal for a man to beat his wife with a strap wider than 2 inches without her consent.
  • It is illegal to cry on the witness stand.
  • Molesting butterflies can result in a $500 fine.
  • It is illegal for a secretary to be alone in a room with her boss.
  • One may not carry a lunch down the street between 11 and 1 o’clock.
  • Persons classified as ‘ugly’ may not walk down any street.
  • It is illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner.
