According to state law, "when two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone." Apparently, a state senator did not want a particular law passed, so he added this ridiculous law onto it, but no one noticed it, and so both laws passed.
Abilene - a city ordinance states that "it is illegal to idle or loiter within the corporate limits of the city for the purpose of flirting or mashing."
Commerce - it is illegal to climb a telephone pole unless you are payed to do so.
Corpus Christi - it is against the law to raise alligators in your home.
Galveston - it is illegal for camels to wander around freely.
Plano - it is against the law to sale foam alligators at parades.
