Seven strange FL laws

Turns out that the state of Florida has a laundry list of quirky laws. But don’t start sweating– someone came to their senses, and some laws have already been repealed.

👩‍⚖️ In the Sunshine State, it’s imperative that if you park your elephant by a parking meter, that you pay like you would for a vehicle. This could include parking your gators or goats.

👩‍⚖️ Florida once accidentally banned all computers + smartphones through an internet cafe ban. The bill was worded in a way that effectively outlawed every computer in the state.

👩‍⚖️ If you chip more than four cups’ edges, saucers or break more than three dishes, you could be in a bit of trouble – because it’s illegal

👩‍⚖️ Being a single woman is all fine and well. But, unmarried women in FL who decide to parachute on Sunday can apparently face jail time.

👩‍⚖️ If you’re ever down in Sarasota, make sure you aren’t caught singing in your swimsuit. Apparently, the act of singing while in your trunks of choice is illegal – at least while in public. 

👩‍⚖️ According to the text, no operator of a bicycle shall tow or draw any coaster, sled or person on roller skates, a wagon, toy vehicle, or other similar vehicle on any public road, sidewalk, or public place.

👩‍⚖️ Cool it, Tony Hawk. Yeah, it’s illegal in Florida to skateboard without your driver’s license. Pretty sure almost all of us are guilty of attempting to skateboard underage. 

While we do not condone breaking any law…if FL does snow, we’ll keep your sled-bike activity on the hush-hush.

Oh, and if you’re looking for a rule book on how to continue being the stand-up citizen that we know you are 👀, check out this list of Polk County ordinances.
