Americans… *sigh*

16 08 2008

Remembering something I had read in a book somewhere about some weird American laws, I decided to research some more about wacky things that are and are not allowed to happen in certain areas of the USA. I found a webpage dedicated to strange laws in America. Some of them follow.

In Alabama, putting salt on a railway track is punishable by death.

In Long Beach, California, it is illegal to curse on a mini golf course.

In New Britain, Connecticut, the speed limit for fire engines is 25 mph, even when going to a fire.

In Florida, unmarried women who parachute on Sundays can be jailed.

In Portland, Maine, it is illegal for men to tickle women under the chin with feather dusters.

And finally, in Minnesota, women may face up to 30 days in jail if they impersonate Santa Claus.

There are many more of these crazy laws to read about – just click here!
