The United States of America. Its people developed a constitution that sparked revolutions across Europe because of its wide range of freedoms. However, there is one thing that hasn’t gone away in this country: a bizarre and confusing set of laws.
In Alabama, It is Illegal to Operate a Motor Vehicle While Wearing a Blindfold
It’s interesting to note that in Alabama, it is a crime to operate a motor vehicle while wearing a blindfold. This rule makes perfect sense.
We were constantly reminded during our driving theory tests and lessons of the critical importance of maintaining a constant line of sight to the road ahead.
When you visit Alabama, you won’t have to worry about encountering blindfolded drivers.
Washing Your Neighbor’s Car Without Permission is Strictly Prohibited

This strange law has to irk criminals in New Jersey, I’m sure. In New Jersey, if you’re caught wearing a bulletproof vest while committing a crime, you’ll face additional charges for attempting to protect yourself from gunshot wounds.
The Rules of Bingo
As a bingo fan, you’ll be disappointed to learn that North Carolina prohibits games lasting more than five hours. Because in this state, it is against the law to be intoxicated while playing bingo, things get even worse.
Adults Are Not Allowed to Eat Sweets
This is a topic worth discussing. Does trick-or-treating allow those over the age of 14? The answer to this question is clear in Chesapeake City, Virginia. You’re out of luck.
It is illegal for adults to trick or treat on their own, even if they are accompanying a minor. However, minors under the age of 14 will be subjected to an 8 p.m. curfew, as well. Please join me in wishing you all a spoon.
Women and the False Teeth They Use
