Dumb laws!!

I was surfing the internet and came across a classic site, Dumb laws.
Inspired by hurricane Katrinas wipe out of New Orleans I remembered reading that in New Orleans it is illegal to tie an alligator to a fire hydrant, thinking that it may not such a dumb law after all, considering.
In my search for the alligator / fire hydrant law I fell upon several laws, in different states, concerning fire men and fire hydrants.

South Carolina (Charleston): “The fire department may blow up your house” (Comforting to know!)

Wisconsin: “It is illegal to wake up a fireman when he is asleep” (Remember to put the firealarm on mute)

Pennsylvania (Danville): “All fire hydrants must be checked on one hour before fires” (???????????)

Iowa (Fort Madison): “The fire department is required to practice fire fighting for fifteen minutes before attending a fire” ( Practice makes perfekt!)

Conneticut (New Britain): ” It is illegal for fire trucks to exceed 25mph, even when going to a fire” (Hurrying slowly??)

Iowa (Marshall town): ” Horses are forbidden to eat fire hydrants” ( Why would they even try?)

Good thing the laws are spread out over different states. Imagine if they were all from one state and your house was on fire.

Have a nice day :-)
