5 Crazy Texas Laws You May Have Broken
A couple of months ago I blogged about five crazy laws in Louisiana that you may have unwittingly broken. For example, it's illegal in the Pelican State to steal crawfish from a crawfish farm, which totally makes sense for Louisiana. Not so much for Texas. So what are some laws peculiar to the state of Texas that could trip you up without you even knowing it? Here are 5 of them.
You read it right. A new anti-crime law was recently enacted in the Lone Star State which mandates that criminals must give 24-hour oral or written notice to their intended victim, including the nature of the crime to be committed.
In Texas this udderly ridiculous law is still on the books. It is unlawful to milk another person's cow.
There's no religious test required, but you must acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being of some sort to be eligible to hold public office in Texas.
Neighsayers notwithstanding, it is illegal in Texarkana to ride a horse without tail lights at night.
It is against the law in Texas to take more than three swigs of beer at one single time while in a standing position. Apparently swimming and guzzling beer are OK.
