Just let those tailgaters pass

When someone starts tailgating you, it is all too easy to get angry. You may even be tempted to do something aggressive yourself, like suddenly hitting the brakes -- known as "brake-checking" the other driver. You may simply start driving slowly to make them angrier and more frustrated than they were before.

Motorcyclists: Arizona's monsoon season ends in September

Arizona is a beautiful state and often a great place to get out on your motorcycle, but you do have to take into account the fact that the state has a significant monsoon season. This is the type of weather that can cause you some serious problems on the road if you get caught unaware. Heavy rains make the roads slick, lead to hydroplaning, reduce your visibility and much more.

Don't assume all commercial zones are the same

When you first learned about zoning laws, it was probably explained to you that land tends to get broken up into commercial zones and residential zones. This keeps housing in one area and puts businesses in a separate area. Not only is this convenient for landowners, but it also helps with city planning, keeps property values high and much more.

Warning signs do not always mean you can't seek compensation

One way that businesses and homeowners try to avoid having to pay someone compensation if they get hurt on the property is by putting up warning signs. While they may argue that they do this to keep people safe -- and it may help -- the focus is often on liability. If someone gets hurt and threatens to sue, they assume they can just point to the sign and avoid payment.

People still aren't doing their estate planning

Have you ever heard that most people have never done their estate planning or written a will? It's a concern that experts have expressed for quite some time, seeing as how everyone will eventually pass away and need an estate plan. That makes it feel like something that 100% of people should do, and yet the statistics have always painted a bleak picture.
