A recently passed anticrime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.

It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. You don't need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.

You can be legally married by publically introducing a person as your husband or wife 3 times (this 1 is really true and then you have to get a divorce just like a ceremony service)

It is illegal to milk another person's cow.

Everywhere has its own oddities of law. Seems a bit quaint to me. Depends if you actually use them. Wonder what odd laws Scotland has!!?

I lived in Texas as a Military wife about 1965. Is there one still on the books:

Horses and buggies are not allowed on the Freeway but if they are must use the right lane except for passing but must not do more than (and I think the speed was 50 miles and hour)?

There was also one about trains: If one train met another at a crossing each had to back up till they could no longer see each other before proceeding.

Only in Texas!

Though I don't know I've lived a few other places that posted laws made about as much sense.

When I lived in New Orleans in the 80's you could drink and drive, and they actually had curb side and drive through bars. There was no place to sit down, you ordered your drinks and took them with you. At the same time you could order a beer at the grocery store just like you would order a soda and walk around the store drinking your beer while you shopped.

You could drink and drive but you couldn't drive drunk or you would get a DWI.

I found this under craziest laws for Louisiana:
**It's legal to walk down the street with a drink in New Orleans, even to drive with a drink. But if you fall over and block the sidewalk, you've just broken the law.**
