5 of the Strangest Indiana Laws You Didn’t Know Existed Indiana

Every state seems to have somehow passed some very strange laws in their history. They are often outdated and have very little, if anything to do with modern society. However, these laws stay on the books until someone challenges them through a lengthy political process, which in the end may not be worth it. This is why I think these laws stick around. The good news is, they make for humorous conversation. Indiana is not immune to silly laws. Here are five of their strangest:

1. A man over the age of 18 may be arrested for statutory rape if the passenger in his car is not wearing her socks and shoes, and is under the age of 17.

Under 17? You better be wearing socks and shoes!

2. Men are prohibited from standing in a bar.

Better stay seated sir!

3. It is against the law to pass a horse on the street.

Thou shall not pass! Thou shall keep thy distance!

Thou shall not pass! Thou shall keep thy distance!

4. Liquor stores may not sell milk.

Don't worry officer, we don't sell any milk!

Don’t worry officer, we don’t sell any milk!

And last but not least:

5. You can get out of paying for a dependent’s medical care by praying for him/her.

Let us pray to not have to pay.
