TNB Night Owl – Weird State Laws NORTH CAROLINA

Let’s take a drive past the sandy beaches and the rolling mountains of North Carolina to find some weird state laws!
Take a stroll through the poll section so we can decide the best worst laws of each state for our grand finale!
  • Elephants may not be used to plow cotton fields
  • It’s against the law to sing off key
  •  It’s a felony to steal more than $1000 worth of grease
  • Before North Carolina got its own lottery, it was illegal to be in mere possession of a lottery ticket, and you’d be fined $2000
  • If a man and woman who aren’t married go to a hotel and register themselves as married, then according to state law, they are married
  • Organizations may not hold their meetings when members present are in costume
  • Bingo games may not last more than five hours, and alcohol is not allowed at bingo games
  • Driving on sidewalks is illegal
  • Visiting the dead after midnight is illegal
  • Women are required to wear clothes that total 16 yards. Meaning Daisy Dukes = illegal
  • It’s illegal for Grandma to get intoxicated at Bingo night

  • In Kill Devil Hills, you may not ride a bicycle without having both your hands on the handle bars

I’ve just got one question that comes to mind. What the h*ll kind of town name is “Kill Devil Hills”? I guess they are very dedicated to the Good Lord’s work…
