Most Bizarre Laws In America (Photos)


A new infographic revealed some of the most bizarre laws on the books in the U.S.

The infographic, created by Olivet Nazarene University, revealed strange laws throughout the country -- including one in North Dakota that prohibits falling asleep with your shoes on.

Another law states that it’s illegal to wear a sleeveless shirt in a public park, and violators are charged a $10 fine.

One of the more outrageous laws is one in Alabama that outlaws wearing a fake mustache that makes people laugh in church. In Indiana, upper lip facial hair is against the law if the person with the hair has a tendency to kiss other people.

In Montana, anyone who guides a sheep onto a railroad track with intent to damage the train could be hit with a $50,000 fine.

The infographic isn’t the only source about odd laws in America. In 2014, the New York Post published a list of equally strange laws -- including one in Cleveland, Ohio, that prohibits women from wearing patent leather shoes in public.
