California is a fantastic place to call home, with ample sunshine and leisure activities aplenty. Californians are full of pride for their home state, and when outsiders move they are unlikely to ever leave the Golden State. If you’re new to the area, we wanted to make sure you know the local laws – we’re betting even for those who have lived in California for decades, this will be news.
Here’s a look at the 7 most outrageous state laws in California, and before you ask – yes, these are all real.
1. It’s unlawful to let a dog pursue a bear or bobcat at any time.
Stop hunting bears, Fido!
2. You may only throw a frisbee at the beach in Los Angeles County, CA with the lifeguard’s permission.
“What is that, a frisbee? Put your hands up!”
3. Sunshine is guaranteed to the masses.
That’s right, California takes its sunshine seriously. It’s not just a priveledge – it’s a right.
4. It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.
5. Women may not drive in a house coat.
But men – you go right ahead.
6. No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
We’re looking at you, Apple.
7. Nobody is allowed to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool (Baldwin Park)
Despite what you’ve heard about cycling in the pool, it can actually be quite irritating for other swimmers.
