Law/Ordinance, whatever. It's 3 here. Why? DIIK. The term arbitrary and capricious comes to mind. "Laws", especially at the local level, may or may not have any logic that makes sense to an individual. Like many local building codes. Personally, I think that many of them are on the books as a demonstration to them citizens as cares that the city is "doing something" by having a law that they can point to. Many are so old that the original justification, if there was any, has long become outdated. On the plus side, as hoofmaiden mentioned, laws like these are seldom enforced unless someone makes an issue of it. Wanna have some fun? Try changing one!
