Crazy Michigan Laws
Rules are meant to be broken, and keep us safe–but some of these Michigan laws just don’t make any sense. What do you think happened to bring about some of these anyway?
#1. People may not be drunk on trains.
#2. A woman isn’t allowed to cut her own hair without her husband’s permission.
#3. Cars may not be sold on Sunday.
#4. There is a 10 cent bounty for each rat’s head brought into a town office.
#5. In Detroit it is illegal for a man to scowl at his wife on Sunday.
#6. In Harper Woods it is illegal to paint sparrows and sell them as parakeets!
#7. In Kalamazoo it is illegal to serenade your girlfriend.
#8. In Rochester (my home town) all bathing suits must have been inspected by the chief of police.
#9. In Wayland, anyone can keep their cow on Main Street downtown for a fee of 3 cents per day.
#10. In the Soo, smoking while in bed is illegal.
