10 Weird Michigan Laws

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.

Oh c’mon! What’s the point of taking a train so you don’t have to drive then? train

#2. A woman isn’t allowed to cut her own hair without her husband’s permission.

Ok, but can there be a law for men to keep their ear and nose hair under control? woman getting a hair cut

#3. Cars may not be sold on Sunday.

But they still run their annoying ads on the radio and TV on Sunday!car steering wheel

#4. There is a 10 cent bounty for each rat’s head brought into a town office.

Here is your summer job, teens! Hunt those rats down and collect your dimes!a rat

#5. In Detroit it is illegal for a man to scowl at his wife on Sunday. 

Especially with an abundance of ear and nose hair! man scowling

#6. In Harper Woods it is illegal to paint sparrows and sell them as parakeets!

Dang, there goes my idea for a second summer job. parakeet

#7. In Kalamazoo it is illegal to serenade your girlfriend.

Awe, that’s just mean. How are young men suppose to woo the loves of their lives? I guess they will just have to text them (how unromantic). man singing with accordian

#8. In Rochester (my home town) all bathing suits must have been inspected by the chief of police.

I can honestly say, while growing up in Rochester, my bathing suit was never inspected by the police. It was, however, inspected at least once by a serenading boyfriend! little girl in bikini

#9. In Wayland, anyone can keep their cow on Main Street downtown for a fee of 3 cents per day.

Now, where did I park my cow? a black and white cow

#10. In the Soo, smoking while in bed is illegal.

Well, this one actually makes sense. firefighter fighting a fire
