I don’t know how to judge this. I just know it mentions April 1st. Story here.

Tesla sales will be banned in New Jersey starting April 1st

From “The Verge”. Story by Chris Welch. March 11, 2014.

Tesla was dealt a crushing blow in New Jersey today after the state’s Motor Vehicle Commission passed a rule that will prevent the company from selling its electric cars directly to consumers starting in April. Unlike other automakers, Tesla sells its Model S through company-owned retail stores — a business model that cuts out the franchised auto dealerships that have ruled the market for decades. New Jersey is the third US state to ban car manufacturers from selling directly to customers, joining Texas and Arizona. But unlike those two states, New Jersey is home to a booming luxury vehicle market, making this a major loss for Tesla.

Not a coincidence, April and October are good middle points in the year for laws to be enacted. Seems an odd situation though.

Technically you are saying it is a coincidence, as in coincidental to April Fools Day grin
