Weird Law: Please Step Off the Coin!

In Thailand, no one may step of any of the nation’s currency.

Why does this law exist?

All the bills and coins in Thailand have a picture of the King printed on them. As the King is highly revered, stepping on his likeness can not only get you landed in jail, but can also lead to a serious beating.
