Did you know that it is illegal to buy cars and hearses for sale on Sunday in 14 states in America? It’s true. And what’s even more surprising is that many owners of the dealerships do not mind this regulation.
Although the law against buying hearses for sale on Sunday sounds like the blue laws of yesteryear, many car dealers actually fight and lobby for this moratorium on sales. This one day a week gives them an opportunity to rest, relax and regroup for the upcoming week. It gives them a chance to take a break from the hectic and chaotic competition that is rampant in the auto selling industry.
Other dealers, however, do not rest easy about the rule. They think it’s their right to open their showroom on Sunday and offer cars and hearses for sale that customers can buy on that day rather than waiting until Monday when the customer could change their mind.
In Rhode Island, there is a difference of opinion among the dealers. In this small state, the legislature recently lifted the ban on car sales on Sunday. However, there are many dealers who still refuse to open the showroom on that day simply take a break from the stringent competition.
What do you think? Should hearse dealers have the option of selling their funeral cars on Sunday? Or should there be legislation throughout the country that regulates Sunday car sales? Let us know your thoughts below.
