With the 2023 Utah legislative session underway, you'll probably hear a lot about potential laws for Beehive State citizens. In fact, there are dozens drafted up for this year's house and senate to vote on, according to Utah.gov.

Though you'll certainly read and hear news about proposed new laws, you may not hear much about the laws already on the books—especially the unusual ones. From drinking laws to outlawed activities, take the quiz to see if you can tell which of these are real and which are imaginary.

1. No dropping stones

A: True. Hansel and Gretel, take note when in Logan; A Logan city code states "It is unlawful for any person to throw, cast or put into, drop and leave in any street or public place within the city limits of this city, any stones, gravel, dirt, manure or garbage or allow the same either intentionally or carelessly to drop off or be thrown from any truck or other vehicle driving through the streets of this city, and allow the same to remain without immediately removing it."

3. No catastrophes

A: True. With a state motto like "industry," you'd better believe Utah is a state of order. That's why causing a catastrophe is expressly prohibited statewide – and disobedience can land you with a first-degree felony.

4. No biting when fighting

A: True. In fact, "ultimate fighting" is strictly prohibited according to Utah law, so you'd better keep your boxing and wrestling matches clean.

6. Keep hands on handlebars

A: True. Utah law requires cyclists to keep at least one hand on the handlebars of bicycles and mopeds at all times, unless he or she is carrying a package. Carrying a package that prevents use of two hands at all times is prohibited.

8. No alcohol during emergencies

A: True. You knew about Sundays, but state law also prohibits the sale and distribution of alcohol during a period of emergency as proclaimed by the governor.
