Some Truly Crazy California Laws

It’s huge…it’s golden and may even be breaking up into three pieces if some voters have their way this November. It’s CALIFORNIA — one of the greatest and most litigious states in the Union. Breaking up is hard to do, but this latest move is far from the nuttiest thing on the books even today. Here are a few examples of crazy California laws from a recent news article about our lovely state:

Frisbee anyone? — Apparently, according to Los Angeles County law, it is illegal for any beachgoers to throw a frisbee without the express permission of a lifeguard. Whether or not the lifeguard should be on duty isn’t stated, but this is absolutely one piece of legislation that keeps the public safe…from frisbees.

Dressing and driving — According to California state law, it’s absolutely illegal for women to drive in a house coat. Either women drive completely dressed or they can drive totally naked. Nothing in between!

Get a Room — Always ones to keep with the highest levels of public decorum, California legislators have made it illegal for animals to mate publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school or place of worship. Who exactly would end up being punished for violating that law, though?

No Hunting and Shooting — This feels obvious, however, it is in fact illegal to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle. Sure, hunting is still legal, but now it can’t be done by sociopaths flying down a highway. Good to know.

And finally, it’s also illegal for someone to allow a dog to pursue a bobcat or bear at any time. Use of the word “allow” is interesting because do you really think you could stop this situation from unfolding?

These are some fun examples of crazy laws, but legal disputes can often be messy, painful and expensive — and they’re everywhere.  When they affect YOU and YOUR business, call in the free-frisbee-throwing litigator Dean Sperling who will work to resolve YOUR matter with YOUR best interests in mind!
