In line with our weekly blogs of weird laws across the nation, let’ s continue our true or false edition of weird laws. Last time we saw some random laws from Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and South Dakota.  Let’s see some weird laws from these next 5 states!

True or False:


“It is illegal for a woman to drive by herself.”

True.  In Memphis Tennessee, it is apparently illegal for a woman to drive a car by herself.  According to the law, a man must walk or run in front of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn pedestrians and motorists that a woman is driving.  If women are such bad drivers, why would you put anyone in front of them?  Maybe they should put whoever enacted that law in front of that car!


“It is illegal to milk another person's cow.”

TRUE.  Maybe in Texas they have personal relationships with their animals.  I wonder, does the cow have culpability in this?


“Restaurants may serve alcoholic beverages only with food.”

TRUE.  According to the law, “alcohol beverage service in a licensed restaurant requires that you order food with your drink.” Its good to know they’re coming out of the dark ages.  At least you can get liquor in Utah.


“It is illegal to tie your giraffe to a telephone pole.”

TRUE.   I don’t even want to think about what necessitated the enactment of this law.  By that logic you can’t tie a lion to a fence post, a gorilla to an electric pole or an alligator to a tree.


“It is illegal to tickle women in Virginia.”

TRUE.  That’s why the District of Columbia was created close by.


You’ll have to wait until next week for the next 5 states!  Are there any weird laws that you thought were false but ended up being true?
