If you’re in business or planning on opening a business soon, you are required to comply with the law in how you conduct your business operations. Health and safety laws are in place to protect everyone who comes in contact with your products, services, or premises. Labor laws protect workers from unreasonable pay or work conditions. Tax laws are designed to promote business owners to pay their fair share of taxes or suffer penalties if they don’t. License laws make sure everyone engaged in a particular specialty business is qualified to perform their duties. If you’re not sure if you are complying with the law, consult a business attorney for advice.
As we all know, traffic laws govern how we operate a moving vehicle on public streets and highways. Every traffic law was created for the safety and protection of drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians who all share the roads together. Moving violations involve a variety of unsafe driving conditions that includes driving over the speed limit; illegal lane changes; failure to stop at traffic signals or stop signs; driving while under the influence of alcohol, controlled substances, or prescription medications that impair the ability to drive safely; and other violations. Non-moving violations include parking violations and faulty equipment such as a broken headlight or dark window tint.
The governments of every state in the U.S. and every country around the world enact laws defining illegal activity. Most of these laws are designed to protect citizens and property from harm caused by the willful and wanton behavior of another person. While these laws are not always perfect, they usually achieve their intended purpose. A person traveling or moving from one state to another must do so with caution due to the fact that what is legal in one state might be illegal in another. For example, medical marijuana might be legal in El Paso, Texas, but in Louisville, Kentucky you could face serious charges and searching for a Louisville criminal attorney to defend you.
