There are a lot of laws on the books to keep society orderly and safe. Some laws make sense, such as those that prohibit assault, theft, vandalism, and others. However, there are some laws on the books whose meanings are lost to time. Here are a few of those weird laws.

  • It is Illegal for a woman to drive while wearing a housecoat. A housecoat, if you don’t know, is usually a thing robe women wear at night or around the house.
  • If you live in Long Beach, you’re probably aware that you can only park cars in your garage inside the city limits. That means if you drive a truck you’re going to have to park it on the street or outside of a parking garage. In San Francisco, this law extends to apartment complexes and hotel parking garages.
  • Should you decide to go fly a kite in the City of Walnut – beware! Should your kite soar higher than ten feet, you’re breaking the law.
  • Any good Samaritans living in Los Angeles should know that it is illegal to wash your neighbor’s car without their permission. Granted, most people probably won’t mind, but it’s always a good idea to ask before handling someone else’s property no matter what your intentions are.
  • Blythe, CA. citizens are forbidden to wear cowboy boots unless they own at least two cows.
  • In Arcadia it isn’t just pedestrians who have the right of way, but peacocks. All peacocks have the right of way in all roads and driveways – including yours!

While there are silly laws like these in cities, states, and municipalities all across the US, most of them are not enforced. So if you happen to find yourself in Blythe without the receipt for your cows, you’ll probably be ok.
