Several sites claim that there is a strange law in Washington state.
For example: Dumblaws.com claims:
A law to reduce crime states: "It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town."
This law was set up to curb an ever increasing crime rate in the area. Due to its sheer stupidity; however, it is needless to say that the law has affected nothing.
I cannot find any reference to it in the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) or similar.
This seems like it could be one of those laws that's used to increase prison sentences, but I'm not sure. It does seem weird that this is using gendered language, as opposed to most laws which use gender-neutral language.
Was this (or similar) ever enacted into law? Is it still technically in effect?
