New Year, New Oddball Laws

year, new laws. When the ball dropped on midnight, January 1st, we not
only rang in the new year, but also a slew of oddball laws from around
the country.

Good Morning America has a few examples:

Turns out 2013 will be unlucky for cat lovers in Wellington, Kan.,
where the city will be restricting the number of cats in a household

Another unusual law taking effect at midnight is Public Act 97-743
in Illinois. This law imposes a fine of $1,000 on anyone who pops a
wheelie on a motorcycle while speeding. [...]

Come 12:01 a.m. in Concord, Mass., plastic bottles will be considered
contraband. Concord will be the first town in the nation to outlaw plastic

As of Jan. 1, it will no longer be illegal to flash your headlights

In California, more than 800 laws are about to take effect, including
one that allows driverless vehicles on the road. But a human must be
