New Jersey has thousands of laws on the books. While most of these laws make sense, there are some out there that are just plain weird.
We all know that pumping your own gas in the Garden State is illegal, but what are some other bizarre and perhaps unknown laws in New Jersey? We put a list together of 10 of the weirdest.
Did you know it's illegal to sell a pair of handcuffs to a minor, and if you're caught doing so you could wind up being charged with a disorderly persons offense. This one kinda makes the most sense to me. Nothing good can come of selling handcuffs to kids.
It is illegal for any dealership in New Jersey to sell automobiles on Sunday. Who wouldn't want to spend the final day of the weekend haggling with a car salesman?
This law is actually on the books in Sea Isle City. Hopefully if you're breaking this law it's because of soup bones.
This doozy of a law is actually on the books in Caldwell. Shaking your grove thing on Main Avenue is bound to get you into trouble. Leave your shorts home, because they also against the law. I kinda like this because you wouldn't want to see me dance.
This one is one of the weirdest, because knitting is not allowed during fishing season, and it only pertains to men. Not sure why. What guy wouldn't want to knit while trying to catch some fish in the great outdoors?
No sourpuss's allowed in New Jersey. You will get into trouble if you frown at a police officer, especially if that officer is having a bad day. There's even a “Frown-Free Town Zone” in Bernard Township!
I would break this dumb law repeatedly. My wife constantly reminds me not to slurp my soup, but I didn't know I was actually breaking the law. I'm not going to tell her about this bizarre law.
The nerve of Trenton lawmakers. No pickles period while you're trying to watch the Eagles. Check your burgers on Sunday's to make sure you're not breaking the law in the state capitol.
This law is actually on the books in Newark. You could get fined and arrested. Not sure a double scoop of Chocolate Lover’s Trash is worth landing in jail. A truly dumb law.
Uh-oh.. I'm in big trouble. I have to admit, I do annoy my wife on a daily basis. This state wide law could really make my life difficult. Here's another dumb law that I'll keep to myself.
