Some Old New Jersey Laws Repealed
Some pretty old New Jersey laws you probably didn't even know existed were repealed this past weekend by Gov. Chris Christie.
For example, there was a law on the books requiring New Jersey drivers to use an audible warning when passing another vehicle on the Garden State's roads, according to washingtonpost.com.
Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things that are "audible" on New Jersey roads when some cars pass others, but I don't thing that's what the law was about, but regardless of that, the rule is now off the books.
And, by the way, if you were detaining or delaying homing pigeons in New Jersey, you can stop worrying. That's not illegal anymore either. But it was. And here's something that will have you breathing a sigh of relief. It is no longer ok for "stallions, bulls and rams to run free at certain times of year".
The article also mentions some unusual laws from outside New Jersey, like California's law that won't allow you to eat a frog that died during a frog jumping competition and the law in Arkansas that forbids a pinball machine from awarding more than 25 free games to a player.
