Make sure you are not a part of this list by using these people as an example. For starters, there were a plethora of flight arrests. Things we notice were a popular cause include drinking too much and slapping your friend really hard across the face really hard. We are not too sure if these two actions ever clashed. We feel like being violent towards your BFF would be back your were downing too many mini wine bottles.

According to Smart Traveler, some people have been arrested once they touched down in a foreign country. If you are bringing your prescription medications with you on vacation, make sure you have them in the original box. Particular countries prohibit particular drugs, including codeine or pseudo ephedrine which are common ingredients in cold or cough medication.

If you are ever in Singapore, make sure you do not walk around naked in your hotel room or feed any pigeons. Australian News also reported that Aussie people have been arrested for “singing and smoking in public” all of which are against the law in that country. People who have been caught doing these actions can expect to receive fines, jail time, and “getting whipped with a 1.2m-long rattan cane” says Australian News.

Happen to plan a vacation in Germany? Make sure you do not run out of fuel on the Autobahn. Many people travel to the country to test out the road that does not have a speed limit. Yes, that is right, you can get in trouble for running out of gas while driving really fast.

Also, make sure not to mention the year of “1966” to any cop. That was the year that England won the World Cup against West Germany. It may sound silly, but take our word and make sure it is not mention in any conversation.

Keep these ridiculous examples in mind and you will be on you way to a jail-free trip!
