Probably half of these are bullsh#t, as usual. For example #1: in Germany up to 50 coins need to be accepted per transaction, more can be refused as payment. And I would bet that some sort of regulation regarding coins exists in most states.

In France, it was illegal for the breathalyzer in 2012. Since 2013, it's still illegal but no fine could be given to driver if he doesn't have one

#12 in the States drinking in public places is illegal. Generally, possession of an open container of alcohol is sufficient proof of public drinking.

#8 ... correct. Story goes that a priest once needed to advice a couple of parents to add a "J" when asking which name would be appropriate for their son thus naming him "Janus". Priest otherwise certain that the proposed name - though sounding nice - would bring trouble to the child later.
