Ten Little Known Louisiana Laws You’re Probably Breaking
I'm laughing already! Louisiana has some really crazy laws. In these days and times, I'm not shocked by much, but I must admit some of these rules and regulations left me speechless. Laws were enacted to help control and protect society. They are supposed to keep order and provide a standard for behavior in civilized civilizations. Right?
Right. Well, tell that to the folks in Washington. As of late, upholding the law is the last thing on people's minds. These days, the nation's lawmakers don't follow the laws of the land themselves, much less uphold them. That's a whole other story.
