Breaking Silly Chicago Laws

Breaking Silly Chicago Laws


When Chicago was first incorporated as a
city in 1837 we enacted a first city charter which brought about a bunch of
laws. Since then the city and Municipal Code has grown substantially during
which they added quite a few laws that were very relevant to the time and today
would seem quite silly to be laws So, during the 1980s a lot of aldermen
campaigned to remove a lot of the outdated laws from the municipal code
however there are still quite a few questionable ones that remained So I decided to ask my friend Rob Scallon if he would like to come along and break
some of Chicago’s silliest laws It’s forbidden to throw stones in any Park,
Playground, Beach or Airport No person should perform or put on a
show in a window that abuts a public way You may not keep any objects on window
sills or railings unless they’re secured in such a way that they won’t fall off it is forbidden to ride a skateboard on
a sidewalk or roadway in any business district it is against the law to tell
one’s fortune in a park in Chicago you’re screwed Sale of spray-paint in the city of
Chicago is illegal and we couldn’t actually find a business that was
willing to sell it to us and break the law Possession of spray paint in the
city of Chicago is also illegal if you’re on someone else’s property Rob: Which were not If you’re in a public building or a public facility Rob: Which we’re not Or you have the intent to deface No cannon or artillery shall be fired in
the city of Chicago without the express permission of City Council *Boom* Between the month of May and October it is illegal to wash the pavement between 7:00 a.m.
and 7:00 p.m. And those are just some of many laws

  • In PA: Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.

  • You should go to lil village on 26st on the small streets and learn more about their culture their ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Chauncey J. Brandom says:

    DUDE! I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS! I moved to chicago in October and it's really awesome to hear all this I fo and whatnot! Keep making videos!

  • Next video you can do a video where you go the every statue in Chicago the big ones that are humans not the animal statues

  • Last one makes sense, actually. My city has a similar rule and it's meant to conserve water, since much of it will evaporate during hot days.

  • Cowboy Frank's Personal Videos says:

    In the late 1960s in Northern Virginia, while a neighbor was researching laws to deal with rock concerts being held in our sub division across our street at a swimming pool he came across an old Virginia law that is still on the books. All railroad crossing gates must be painted black and white because those are the colors best seen by horses. In the early 70's, the railroad changed their gates to black and orange to be seen easier by humans. The state made them change back to black and white as they still are.

  • I'd love to see a video about the train station that used to be where Ogilvie is now. I've only seen one or two historic photos, but what I've seen of it was super impressive.

  • Luis Alfredo Oficial says:

    Me and My roomate are Chicago natives and love this amazing city. We want to create content like you. We would like to collab and know how you been learning so much since you've been here for only 2 years. Wow props to you my friend. #LoveChicago

  • You should do a video on the "Chicago Railroad Viaducts." They are a huge part of Chicago's landscape! There are thousands of them. http://www.trbimg.com/img-53789845/turbine/chi-cicero-chicago-car-crash-20140518-001/2048/2048×1536

  • Hey, it's the WINDY city, it makes perfect sense to secure anything on window sills!
    Heck, Chicago winds can pick up a chair on your balcony and throw it God knows where.

  • Frank Winkhorst says:

    The window sill one actually makes a lot of sense, especially if it's over a pedestrian walkway. What surprises me is that there is no law against placing an unsecured piano on a ledge….

  • Not all of these are silly, who want a potted plant to come crashing on your head from 3 stories, and many cities have skateboard laws.

  • Danny Oviedo Alem says:

    Some of those laws were not stupid, it is actually dangerous to leave anything on a window if you cannot ensure that is not going to fall, it can actually fall down and kill or injure somebody depending on how tall the building is. The same goes for skating and washing the pavement (it can cause someone to slip and get hurt) there have been instances where that happens particularly with elderly people and that's why they established that in the hours with more pedestrians of the day it will be illegal to wash it

  • TearsofRainbow01 says:

    The second and third actually make sense. The second can cause large crowd and cause disruption and the third can actually hurt or kill people if not followed the law๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  • The objects on a window sill law is not silly at all. If the building is tall enough and an object like a potted plant falls it can kill someone or seriously hurt them.

  • MelonWater217 nworah says:

    Some of the dumb laws seem reasonable if you consider safety precautions. But the the dumb laws in the UK are just stupid and clearly made by someone who was easily triggered. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • What about the disturbing literature law I was treated with jail time when I was in high school. I'm glad I'm out. I wish my mental scar would heal. I can finally finish my book…

  • wait till you suffer permanent brain damage (or death) by being struck on the head by a bonsai in a sturdy stoneware pot falling from the 10th floor and try calling that law silly…i actually had a plant on my window sill on the 10th story, one day i looked and it was missing. the shame of going down to clean the brown explosion on the pavement and knowing i could have caused someones death…also perhaps like in my city they are trying to conserve water by restricting washing of the pavements with water. sounds sensible to me.

  • this is the most silly laws i ever see(in Indonesian), because the laws is too directed to the ordinary people, meanwhile the government who doing a crime only get an easy sentenced.

    this is the stupid law i'm talking about

    1. let animal farm roaming in someone yard/garden can be sentenced $10M,
    2. parent unaccidentally shows contraception things in front of children can be sentenced $1M
    3. having a sex outside of marriage can be sentenced
    4. gathering buffalo can be sentenced
    5. a girl stay with the opposite sex to save money can be sentenced
    6. deliberately aborting the womb, including for rape victim can be sentenced to jail
    7. a woman who work over night and get lost be considered as homeless can be sentenced $1M
