The Town of Plymouth has perhaps 20, 30 miles of waterfront, mostly beach, and >365 ponds and lakes; it is illegal in Plymouth to swim in the nude in public until after 6 o'clock at night -- BUT there is no time limit.
On St John, one can no longer swim in the nude in the federal park -- BUT the municipality, which has no laws in that regard, owns all the beaches.
In Boston, there is a rule that noone can walk through a buryground without stopping -- BUT it not say how long one has to stop.
As a bicyclist, if I'd followed "the rules of the road", I would have been dead 30-35 years ago. Laws are not to be broken but to be selectively ignored.
My sweet pups and I will continue to go to the completely illegal dog park in the perfect spot for offleash play where leashes are only enforced on Monday mornings (and everyone knows it). And we will bark at whomever needs barking at, damnit!
