Strange California Laws You Might Need To Know

Every state has its own list of bizarre laws that make little or no sense to residents. In many cases, these laws were enacted decades ago and they simply are no longer relevant. Yet, somehow, they remain on the books. The Golden State is no exception. Check out these strange California laws.

In Simi Valley, a law prohibits flying model airplanes, driving golf balls and archery on any public land, including city parks. That makes sense when you consider the possible danger to others. What makes very little sense is the rest of the law, which goes on to prohibit volleyball, soccer, football, softball and baseball on public property. That makes it kind of hard to imagine what the legislature expects people to do in its city parks.

We can only imagine that law enforcement officers in Walnut must be extremely busy every year on Oct 31. Either that or the sheriff is inundated with paperwork in the days leading up to Halloween. Why, you ask? Because a law on the books there prohibits the wearing of a disguise or mask on any public street without first obtaining a permit from the sheriff. By the way, do not even think about flying a kite with metallic components more than 10 feet above the ground, because that activity is also against the law in the city of Walnut and there is no sheriff’s permit that will get around that one.

If you happen to be driving down Rancho California Street in Temecula be ready to step on the brake pedal if you see a duck. These web-footed inhabitants have the right of way and if you fail to give it to them, you are sure to run “afowl” of the law.

These head-scratching laws, in no way, make California unique. People all across America are breaking laws everyday that they never even knew existed. In fact, we’re quite sure most people would be wanted for one thing or another in at least one state if law enforcement ever decided it was time to go strictly by the books.
