When traveling to other countries you must adhere to all of the laws. It’s a good idea to thoroughly research a destination beforehand so you can figure out what is illegal and what isn’t. While some laws may seem silly, the countries and cities listed below all have their reasons why they were enacted and you might actually face a heavy fine if you break one of them.
Depending on where you are at in Greece, it may be illegal to wear heels. This is because at certain sites heels actually caused damage to some of the monuments. When in doubt, where a good old pair of sneakers and leave the heels at home.
If you drive down the autobahn in Germany, do not run out of fuel. It’s illegal to do so. For those that forget to stop for gas ahead of time and run out of fuel, they may face a double fine because it’s also illegal to walk down the autobahn, so forget about walking to the nearest gas station.
