1. In Queensland taxi drivers must keep a bale of hay in the boot of their car. I want to know the reason why? 2. In Victoria it is illegal to change a light bulb unless you are a qualified electrician. Someone needs to let tenants and landlords know. 3. Bars are required by law to stable, water and feed the horses of patrons. Can you refuse service to patrons of horses. 4. It is illegal to be 'drunk' in pubs in Australia. Interesting to know what the fines would be. 5. After midday on Sunday in Victoria it is illegal to wear pink hot pants. @datto one to know. Personally think it should be illegal all times and in all states. 6. On Melbourne's Brighton Beach, bathers are breaking the law if they do not wear a neck-to-knee swimsuit. 7. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited to buy cigarettes, but can smoke as many as they want. 8. It is illegal to leave your car keys in an unattended vehicle. More stupid I would think. 9. It is against the law to roam the streets wearing black clothes, felt shoes and black shoe polish on your face. 10. It's illegal to walk on the right hand side of a footpath. Guilty of this one. 11. Coming within 100 metres of the carcass of a dead whale is against the law. 12. Spitting in Brisbane is illegal and gross. Again another one that should be covered in all states. 13. You can be fined $500 for advertising a reward for lost or stolen property and stating "no questions asked" for its return. So it is a "Don't ask, don't tell" or get arrested. 14. It is illegal to wear a disguise without a lawful excuse. Link: And for NSW residents: A dog, pig, cow or horse can be considered a vehicle as long as it is being ridden or drawing another vehicle.
