Wait, somebody actually made these laws?!

Florida has a reputation for being a very bizarre and unusual state. These laws I listed here certainly don't dissuade that notion. This the Top 11 Weirdest Laws in Florida! These will be ranked from "Odd" to "Weird", "Bizarre" and "Good Lord, what were these people thinking?!".

To clarify, some of these laws are not part of Florida as a whole, just certain cities or localities in Florida. So some laws in Miami Beach may not be applicable in Tampa. Though others still affect the entire state. Some of them are just getting a fine, while others risk jail time. Now keep in mind, these laws were probably made because there were some people who actually did these absurd things. So without any further ado, let's begin:

11. It's illegal to lean a bike on a cemetery's tree: Odd

Locality: Destin

10. It's illegal to skateboard without a license: Odd
