Questionable about the "unintended consequences" but close enough:
Place where I used to work had a strict policy that you couldn't email certain attachments, including programs (sensible) and pictures (questionable). Filtering software automatically removed any such attachments. But you could still email documents, including those made with a certain brand of word processing software.
This particular brand of word processing software also had a "scripting language" which had the ability to both read and write a file, byte-by-byte.

I would occasionally browse news sites during my breaks and would find interesting pictures from news stories which I wanted to email to myself to keep for later. The pictures tended to be deleted after a short time so I couldn't count on them still being available after I got home.

Because I did (and still do) programming as a hobby, it didn't take me too long to figure out how to use the word processing program to convert any file into a word processing file so I could email it and convert it back to the original file at home.
So the unintended consequence was that I created a way to bypass their filter so whatever I sent in or out would be unmonitored, when if they'd been sensible they would have allowed pictures in and out but with a delivery delay so the attachment could be checked.

Thanks, PostDoggo

Seems a lot of this wasn't that the rule itself was bad, just that human beings are shit eating assbags who break rules that don't have real consequences.

My dad implemented this house rule where’s you have to hand over your smart phones by 10 pm and take them back by morning. Turned out, a few of us has trouble getting up early so we set a bunch of alarms. Mine is the worse as it would ring every 5 mins starting from 4 am to 8 am. My poor mom had to keep getting up every 5 min to turn it off while my dad who wakes up at 8 can’t catch a sleep. The rules is now gone.

When I was in 6th grade, they banned peanut butter after the first or second week of school because of some kid with a peanut allergy. Less than a month later, they unbanned it because so many people complained. The peanut allergy dude was required to not sit next to anyone eating something with peanut butter at lunch.

Here's an older one

Way over in 17th century india, "respectable" brits would obviously have to travel. Only one problem: cobers friggin everywhere. So the honorable East India Company placed a bounty on cobras, and a reward for their heads. Things didn't immediately backfire. Cober populations rapidly dropped, but eventually, there where almost no cobras on the streets, so the native indians started farming them. When the brits noticed there were no cobers on the streets they ended the bounty.

Scince all these indians were farming cobras for money, and they suddenly became worthless, they threw them out on the streets, and the brits were back to square one.

Edit: I've got a few more recent ones.

This one takes place in Mexico City, a place with a huge smog problem. It's so bad it's like there's always a caustic cloud over it. So the Gov.t decides to divide the population into sevenths based on their license plates and tell each one they aren't allowed to drive on a certain day of the week.

The problem was people still had to go to work, drive their kids to school, etc. so they went out and bought the cheapest junker they could find and drove that instead.

After a while, the air was palpably worse.

And here's one that's still going on.

In the US, if an endangered animal is discovered on your property, it was forfeited, and you couldn't build anything on it. This was to help endangered species.

I'll illustrate the problem with a hypothetical situation.

You've just turned 20 and your rich and amiable parents give you a big plot of land near a suburb. As your surveying it, Walmart shows up and offers $100,000,000 for your land. Who's to argue to that? So you give them the land and buy an even bigger plot somewhere in the woods. But at the last minute as you're surveying the land, you look up and see a spotted owl.

The unfortunate truth is that many have invented a saying for this situation: Shoot, Shovel, and Shut up.

And lastly there was a law to stop disabled persons from being discriminated. So they made it illegal to fire someone because of a disability.

I think you already see what went wrong.

If the disabled person got fired for a legitimate reason, they claimed it was because of their disability and raked in tons of lawsuit $$$. What happened was the employers wouldn't even hire them in the first place.

This crap happens unsettlingly frequently with gov.t, and it's one of the reasons why Venezuela is such a trash fire.

In high school on Senior Skip Day, the school district decided to make the day a half day that they were going to already have, since they expected seniors to skip that day. So in response, seniors just skipped that day and the Monday after.
