“Here’s one I found for Florida. You must park your truck indoors after 7 pm.

Since the 1960’s, the city of Coral Gables has prohibited truck owners from parking their vehicles on driveways or on city streets. This law was reinforced in 2011 when the city started to fine people $100 for their first violation and $500 for subsequent violations.”

“Montana has an Open Range law. It is not up to ranchers to contain their cattle. It’s up to others to keep them out. Neighboring cattle broke through the fence and got into our subdivision, damaging some property. The subdivision had to pay for the damage and the new fence.”

“Wisconsinites are supposed to pay back sales tax to the State for any purchases made out of State.

Many local municipalities will restrict the sale of alcohol after 9 pm. The lore is that the Tavern League (a lobbying group for bars in the State) tries to get this passed as it encourages people to go to the bar instead (citation needed).”

“Wisconsin doesn’t allow the use of margarine in schools or prisons. Also, if a restaurant has margarine on the table, they must also provide butter. Just protecting the dairy industry.”

“There’s one law on Utah’s books that while I get the idea of it, I find it completely unenforceable. The law is that it’s illegal to shift gears when driving over railroad tracks. I get the idea behind it of not wanting vehicles stalling out, getting hit by a train, cleanup, etc.

However, how exactly can that be enforced? It really can’t be obvious because such is impossible. Now worst-case scenario, if someone with a manual transmission did shift going over tracks, stalled, got hit, and everything else, how would anyone be able to prove anything on that matter? When the vehicle gets hit, it’ll likely knock everything around so much that it’d be impossible to tell what gear the trans was in when the car stalled out.

That’s probably a strange law, however, not based on something weird that a lot of laws are like with what you’re asking about.”

“Spitting is illegal in my town because it spreads tuberculosis. It’s also illegal to drive a horse cart through the town square on a Sunday without a permit. They don’t enforce the first one, and I’m not sure that the other comes up much.”
