Strange Colorado Laws

June 8, 2009 — 2 Comments

I started a new series yesterday on the 10 Commandments called, Law and Order.

In the introduction of my sermon I shared some strange laws on the books here in Colorado.  I found them here:  Dumb Laws

Here are a few of my favorite ones:

In all of Colorado it is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence.

Alamosa–Throwing missiles at cars is illegal.

Arvada–Establishments which sell alcohol must have enough lighting to read text inside them.

Aspen–Catapults may not be fired at buildings.

Boulder–It is illegal to permit ones llama to graze on city property.

Boulders may not be rolled on city property.

Couches may not be placed on outside porches.

Colorado Springs–It is permissible to wear a holstered six-gun within city limits, except on Sunday, Election Day, or holidays

Cripple Creek–It is illegal to bring your horse or pack mule above the ground floor of any building.

Denver–It is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor.

It is illegal to mistreat rats in Denver, Colorado.

Durango–It is illegal to go in public dressed in clothes “unbecoming” on one’s sex.

Logan County–It is illegal for a man to kiss a woman while she is asleep. (This is illegal in my house, too!–ac)

Vail–It is illegal to crash into obstacles on a ski slope.

Sterling–Cats may not run loose without having been fit with a taillight.  (I think this one should read, Cats may not run loose except when they are being chased by a vehicle with taillights.–ac)
