Was in Georgia over the weekend. At one point I hadn't seen a Florida license plate all day. A lot of NC SC and of course GA plates but very few FL plates. Anyhow headed home on I-95, a group of vehicles got into a cluster. Ppl trying to pass other ppl, ppl passing on the right side, ppl going really slow in left lane and texting, etc. it was the first time on the trip there was a cluster of ppl that didn't know how to act, drive. Like everyone was in each others way and nobody knew what to do... About 5-6 vehicles... All of a sudden... All FL plates... It was comical.

No, because that's inaccurate--Florida is the poor man's California.

Just type 'dumb laws in CA' on Google and you will get a whole bunch of crazy CA crapola... CA is just as crazy, if not worse.

California prison workers will no longer be allowed to have sex with inmates

It’s unlawful to let a dog pursue a bear or bobcat at any time.

In San Jose and Sunnyvale it is illegal for grocery stores to provide plastic bags.

You may only throw a frisbee at the beach in Los Angeles County, CA with the lifeguard’s permission.

It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.




Women may not drive in a house coat.

No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour. wtf?

Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.

Ice cream may not be eaten while standing on the sidewalk. (Repealed when Clint Eastwood was mayor)

Every state has archaic/dumb laws.

I remember reading just a few years ago that Florida finally outlawed dwarf tossing. I wonder what other weird stuff would turn up on Google?
