Bulgaria: Three of the Most Bizarre Laws in the World Source: Pixabay

There are laws and traditions in the world that are quite strange and ridiculous. One would even wonder if the lawmakers who created them had common sense. See 3 of them:

1. Cleaning of toilets after 22pm is forbidden in Switzerland

Cleaning toilets after 22pm in residential buildings is illegal in Switzerland. The government considers this to be a noise pollution. The law-makers believe that this may disturb the neighbors.

2. A ban on having more than one child in China

China imposed a ban on having more than one child in the family in 1970 to regulate the growth of its population.

After decades of so-called "one-child policy," the law removed and millions of families were allowed to have a second child.

3. In Japan it is forbidden to be fat

In 2009, lawmakers in Japan set a maximum waist size, which means that every man over 40 years of age should not have a waist above 78 cm, and for women the ceiling is 89 cm. And that is the country that gave the world the sumo.
