5 of Strangest Virginia Laws You Didn’t Know Existed Virginia

Laws are hard to come by. There is a long process that starts at local government levels and then moves up the ranks. It’s amazing that these 5 laws were even passed, but what is more amazing is that they have yet to be repealed! Here are the 5 silliest, dumbest, most outrageous state laws in Virginia:

1. Citizens must honk their horn while passing other cars.

If everyone is following this law in Virginia then it must make it by far, the noisiest state in the country!

2. Children are not to go trick-or-treating on Halloween.

To me this is insane! Is it because all the houses are foreclosed? That’s the only reason I could imagine this happening. I say if there is one law to break this year, THIS is the one!

3. It is illegal to tickle women.

They have diarrhea. That’s the only reason I can understand why there is this law. All women in Virginia apparently have diarrhea all the time and therefore it is illegal to tickle them. This is completely reasonable.

4. No animal may be hunted for on Sunday with the exception of raccoons, which may be hunted until 2:00 AM.

I don’t know what Sunday has to do with hunting, but can you imagine pointing a gun at this cute little guy at 1:59 AM?

5. There is a state law prohibiting “corrupt” practices of bribery by any person other than candidates.

This was probably the easiest law to pass. I can only imagine this on a ballot with a bunch of legal jargon that made no sense to anyone without an Ivy League law degree. Oh well, at least their honest about it.

Virginia is a beautiful state with an amazing history. These laws may be insane but as you’ll find out on WhenInYourState.Com, every state has some very strange laws.
