Those who live in Texas and some other states must have come across a tree or fence which is painted purple. While almost everyone knows that it is not allowed to go near it, there are those who are yet to understand why that is so.
Residents are allowed to mark their territories’ outskirts by states that practice the purple paint law. They don’t have to build a fence or wall to let everyone to that it is wrong to trespass the property.
It should be noted that most America’s southern states have unpredictable weather patterns which makes it hard to rely on the “No trespassing” signs which can be blown away by the strong windstorm. Thus it is the best alternative to landowners when it comes to making their land’s borders. Additionally, those with large pieces of land will hardly notice that there is a missing “No Trespassing” sign given that they have a lot they have to do day in day out. Once they have sprayed the paint, their work is done and they forget about it.
The law also reminds hunters that the zone is a “No Hunting Purple.” The law was first created back in 1987 in Arkansas, Bill Clinton’s birth place. Some of the states where the law is observed include:
- North Carolina
