Minnesota – Statute 168.275 bans sales of motor vehicles on Sundays, but permits the sale of trailers for powersports vehicles.
Missouri – Statute 578.120 bans motor vehicle sales on Sundays, but carves out an exception for “recreational motorized vehicles.”
Texas – Transportation Code 728.002 says dealers may not sell vehicles on consecutive Saturday and Sundays. The law has faced several challenges, most recently from the El Paso Independent Auto Dealers Association. The state Court of Appeals for El Paso dismissed their appeal on technical grounds. Appeals ran out in 2006, with the law still in place.
Utah – Utah Code 41-3-210 says dealers may not sell vehicles on consecutive Saturdays and Sundays.
Wisconsin – The state’s blue law states the Sunday ban doesn’t apply to “any person who conscientiously believes that the 7th day of the week, from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, should be observed as the Sabbath and who actually refrains from conducting or engaging in the business of buying, leasing, selling or offering for lease or sale motor vehicles, or performing other secular business on that day.” So dealers must close on Saturday or Sunday.
Smaller jurisdictions are also struggling with blue laws. Just this week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie touched off a kerfluffle with a budget proposal that would end blue laws in holdout Bergen County. State legislators from that area are already opposing his plan.
