9 of the world’s silliest, craziest and wackiest laws

If you’re planning a trip anytime soon, you’d better take note of some of the weirdest laws that you may encounter on your travels…

1: In Samoa, it’s a crime to forget your wife’s birthday.

2: In Canada, one out of every five songs played on the radio needs to be sung by a Canadian. Justin Bieber, anyone?

3: In Venice, Italy, it is illegal to feed the pigeons.

4: Running out of petrol on Germany’s autobahn is a no-no, as is walking alongside the autobahn.

 

5: In Milan, Italy, a law requires citizens to smile at all times to avoid a hefty fine, except at hospitals and funerals where you can let your true colours show.

6: In Honolulu, Hawaii, it is illegal to sing loudly after sunset.

7: In Turin, Italy, dog owners are forced to take their dogs for a walk at least three times a day. Lucky doggies.

8: In Vermont, USA, a wife needs her husband’s written permission to wear false teeth.

9: In Japan, drivers can be fined for splashing water on a pedestrian.
