Everybody wants a decent society to live in. We crave clean streets, educated children and a secure ambiance, which is why such measures like Open Container Laws in the United States are conceived. In the U.S. the presence of open containers of alcohol in certain public places is prohibited.
The concept of a public place is defined as a social place, indoor or outdoor, generally open and accessible to people. In this context, public areas such as sidewalks, parks and vehicles restrict the active consumption of alcohol. As a rule, bars and restaurants do not fit in this category.
America is the place for wacky state laws. Each State has it’s own pretty unbelievable things including laws which are odd, laughable and downright bizarre. When packing your bags and heading off to any of these places you should be careful because you never know what weird laws may still be in effect! These laws may be funny, but finding yourself on the wrong side of the law is no laughing matter.
Here they are, the dumbest laws in America:
Illinois: It is illegal to drink beer out of a bucket while sitting on the curb.
Iowa: It is illegal to hunt from an aircraft.
Kentucky: It is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your back pocket.
West Virginia: It is illegal for children to attend school with there breath smelling of wild onions.
Alaska: It is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane.
California: Illegal to set a mouse trap without a hunting license.
Connecticut: It is illegal to walk across the street on your hands.
Florida: It is illegal to fart in a public place after 6:00 pm on Thursdays.
Idaho: It is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
