Every country, civilization, or culture has its own rules and regulations. If some of them are absolutely normal, there are laws that seem to be extremely bizarre and quite scary. All in all, there are hundreds of them out there, but ten of them can definitely stand out from the crowd.
10. Perfect challenges for outlaws in Denmark
Denmark is a great place to live in, especially if you are an outlaw. The laws are normal if you compare them to other countries. They depend on what you actually do. But once you get in prison, the challenge to escape is very attractive. It sounds pretty unusual, but in Denmark, escaping from prison is legal, as long as you are smart enough to develop an appropriate plan.
9. Death Penalty for Drunk Drivers in El Salvador
Although drinking alcohol and driving are two legal activities that never work together, the laws vary from one place to another. Normally, the unfortunate drivers end up with a ticket or a suspended driving license. However, if you ever travel to San Salvador – the capital of El Salvador, you should not even think about it. The drivers caught drunk in the city are not fined or arrested, but sentenced to death by shooting.
8. Checking for hidden object in Denmark
If you think about traveling to Denmark and you see the vehicle owners looking under their cars before driving away, this is because of a law that obliges them to do it and verify if there are any objects hidden there. The idea seems pretty stupid now, but it is very useful for cats during the wintertime, as they tend to protect themselves against the bad weather.
7. Bragging in Washington
Living in Washington can be fun, but if you come from a rich family, try to avoid bragging about it. There is a law that forbids bragging about your rich parents, and too much talk will definitely get you in jail. Your parents’ money may no longer be that useful then, except for bail bonding you.
6. Smiley faces in Italy
Milan, Italy, is supposed to be a smiley place. Mostly because of a bizarre law forcing every man to smile, unless he is going to a hospital or a funeral. Although the law is a little old and less likely to be applied today, it is still there in the top of the most unusual laws.
