Department of Weird Laws: New Jersey Forbids Car Sales on Sundays

New Jersey Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo (D-Hamilton) is proposing a bill that would legalize auto sales on Sundays. Which leads us to the obvious question: What? You can’t sell cars on Sundays in Jersey?! Well you can, but a “1937 law makes selling a car in the Garden State on a Sunday a disorderly persons offense punishable by a $100 fine and 10 days in jail.” OK, fine, said a representative from the weird and antiquated legislation lobby, but only if you keep forbidding people from pumping their own gas.
