As I was sitting there I thought to myself, is this actually illegal? New Jersey has a lot of wacky laws that you never knew existed and every time I do something like this I always think to myself, am I accidentally committing a New Jersey crime?
If you know anything about me, you know I have major driving anxiety, so I want to always make sure I give myself no reason to get pulled over or anything like that. I did some research and here’s what the laws in New Jersey are saying about kicking your shoes off before you hit the road.
