Who Is Liable If a Minor Drinks at a Party?

From time to time, people get adventurous and decide that they want to throw a party at their home. Maybe they haven’t seen their friends and family members in a while, or they have some big event to celebrate, whatever the reason, they want everyone there.

Providing alcohol at parties can do a lot more than just get people drunk. In some places, it can get the host into legal trouble if one of the attendees gets too drunk and hurts someone. This law is often referred to as social host liability...

Remember to Slow Down in School Zones

Every driver knows that speed limits can vary from place. After all, a person wouldn’t expect to be able to drive freeway speeds through a residential neighborhood. These differences exist for safety reasons. It wouldn’t be safe for the driver, or pedestrians to fly down a residential street at those speeds.

By reducing speeds, a driver has more control of their vehicle and is less likely to get into a horrible accident. A driver can expect speed limits to slow down in areas where cars will be merging into traffic, or wherever a lot of pedestrians will be present. Roads near schools are perfect examples of this.

School zones are roads that are within 1,000 feet of a school...

There are a lot of things out there that a majority of the population just don’t want to see. For most people, this list includes other people’s genitals. This is why most states, including California, have laws against a person exposing their private parts to others. This law is often referred to as indecent exposure.

If a person thinks it is a good idea to reveal their private parts to another individual, without that person’s consent, then they might want to think again. They can get into serious trouble for breaking this law. However, this law can cause some concerns for new mothers who are still breastfeeding their child.

What Is Indecent Exposure?

Here in the state of California, indecent exposure is made classified and made illegal under California Penal Code (PC) 314...

Here in the state of California, it is hard to go anywhere without seeing someone begging for money. There are almost always people sitting at the bottom of freeway off-ramps, in front of stores, or just roaming a shopping center parking lot asking for loose change. For some people, this is just harmless begging. For others, it is a nuisance.

There is no shortage of homeless people who are down on their luck here in the state of California. Many of them just need a helping hand. Unfortunately, a small percentage of them are just con-artists looking to make a quick buck off of charitable people.
