Where did changing a light bulb become illegal?

In Victoria, Australia, there was legislation that said it was illegal to change a light bulb. On the web platform Quora, social media users have posed queries about this.

They were first instructed to guess the location’s name. Some individuals typed the wrong name, Japan, while others typed the correct response, Australia. This law encompassed all electrical work, not just changing the light bulb.

Why was it illegal?

In Victoria, no one could do any electrical work unless they were a qualified electrician. To install a fuse and change a bulb or plug, they needed a licence.

The Energy Act aggressively enforced this regulation on the general public until 1998. According to some accounts, breaking the legislation could result in a fine of up to ten Australian dollars (about Rs 500). 

However, things have evolved significantly, and Australian locals are now excluded from this legislation when they are inside their houses. They are still not permitted to change the bulbs in public and commercial establishments, particularly in Western Australia.

How do some other laws baffle people in Australia?

There are several more regulations in Australia that have gotten the attention of people all throughout the country. It was unlawful to be near or inside a house frequented by thieves, according to News.com.au.
