Utah law keeps us safe and happy when properly initiated. It protects victims of drunk drivers, domestic abuse and prevents others from abusing drugs. But what happens when long forgotten laws stay on the books for centuries? Utah and Salt Lake City have a unique history of blended cultures and traditions that has resulted in some strange rules still in the books.
Some laws are restricted to single cities in Utah. For example, Provo need to watch out during the winter because throwing snowballs can result in a $50 fine. Ogdenites are only allowed one cow on their property and in Logan, women are legally barred from swearing, gosh darnit.
Compared to other U.S. states, Utah has a history of unique alcohol laws. For instance, restaurants may only serve wine with meals if customers ask for a wine list and nobody can sell alcohol during an emergency.
