3. No Singing Off Key. In North Carolina, it’s against the law to sing off key! So pretty much anyone who has sung at a karaoke bar has broken this law. The origin of this weird law dates back to the 19th century.

1. No Rollerblading on the Highway. There are a lot of laws that are so specific that there must’ve been an incident at one moment that caused the law to be written; this law is certainly one of them.
2. No Driving on Sidewalks. This is another one that’s so obviously unsafe that you wouldn’t think you need to write a specific law. You can be prosecuted for failing to drive with due care and attention, so it’s odd that this one needed to be on the books specifically.
3. You Can’t Use Elephants to Plow Cotton Fields. This is a very strange one because elephants are not indigenous to North Carolina. Did someone actually try to plow a field with an elephant, or perhaps the law was written up by people who were invested in the horse trade?
4. No Serving Bingo Players Alcohol. When you think of a rowdy bunch of people, your first thought almost certainly isn’t going to be of bingo players. Either the rules of bingo are a little different in North Carolina, or this is quite a strange law.
5. It’s Illegal to Throw Rocks in the Street. In North Carolina, there are laws that forbid rock throwing in the street. Again, there was probably an incident or collection of incidents that led to such a specific scenario being legislated against.
6. It’s Illegal to Ride a Bike Without Using Both Hands. Everyone knows that riding a bike without using your hands is not really a good idea, but most states don’t have a specific law that forbids it.
7. You Can’t Collect Reward Money for Yourself. If you’ve committed a crime and there’s a reward advertised for your capture and arrest, you can’t turn yourself in to collect the reward money.
8. Legislated Font Sizes. In some cases, North Carolina law regulates the font size you can use. Restaurants in North Carolina are required to display menus that are readable by people sitting outside, but not readable by people in the street.
9. You Have to Pay Taxes on Your Illegal Drugs. This is quite a difficult law to follow because in order to follow it, you’d have to openly admit to breaking another serious one.
10. Notify the City Before You Enter in a Car. Forest City, NC, has a law that says you have to notify the city before you enter it in a car. Digest These Weird Laws in North Carolina.
