    No arrests in Ohio yesterday? Really?

    Found this during my usual morning stroll through the webnets.

    What laws have you got in your area that are a relic of the past and rarely (if ever) adhered to?

    MOUNT VERNON — An obscure Ohio law, enacted in 1953, states that no person shall be arrested on the Fourth of July. The law also states that no one shall be arrested on a Sunday, or on their way to or from their designated place of worship. Although the Ohio Senate introduced a bill to repeal this law in 1998, it failed to pass and the law remains in effect to this day.

    According to the Ohio Revised Code section 2331.13, there are some exceptions to the rule. Treason, the commission of a felony, or breach of the peace still constitute grounds for arrest on these days.

    Though there is no legal definition for breach of the peace in Ohio law, some government officials have compared this directly to the definition of disorderly conduct.

    Section 2917.11 of the Ohio code defines disorderly conduct as recklessly causing the inconvenience, annoyance or alarm to another person by doing any of the following: Fighting, threatening, unreasonable noises or gestures, insulting, taunting, and a variety of other things a citizen is not allowed to do while intoxicated, first of which is drive a car.

    Section 2331.13 of this 1953 law further states that whoever arrests a person in violation of the Sunday, Fourth of July, or church provisions shall pay the person arrested $100, to be recovered by civil action.

    In Michigan (and I suspect many other places), it is illegal to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk (same as operating any other vehicle on the sidewalk). Same Road, Same Rules, Same rights (of bicycles compared to cars). Yet somehow people get all fussy about people riding in the street. Yelling, throwing stuff, getting close behind you and laying on the horn.
