Why do people say loud pipes save lives?

A motto in the motorcycle community, at least among those who ride loud cruiser bikes, is that that "loud pipes save lives." This is typically said in response to the complaint that loud motorcycles are annoying and disruptive, a position often taken by pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers.

Can you seek a change to zoning laws?

When you bought your latest property, it was while under the impression that the property was zoned commercially and residentially. You wanted to use the upper part of the building for apartments while opening the bottom of the building up to be used as a business.

Zoning may address more than type of use

In a very general sense, the idea behind zoning laws is to divide buildings used for certain purposes. The three main zones are industrial, commercial and residential. While there is some overlap at times, most buildings stick to a certain type in each respective area, giving the city structure and keeping property values consistent.

Don't try to skirt the hands-free driving laws

In Arizona, lawmakers have enacted hands-free driving laws to make sure that people do not get distracted behind the wheel. Under these laws, only hands-free systems can be used for phone conversations. Texting and driving is illegal, but so is holding your phone to make a call.

Considerations when using your home as a business

Are you thinking about using your home, a residential property, as a business? Properties are zoned for different types of use, so you may or may not be able to do so. It's very important to understand what type of zone you live in and what restrictions you face.

What is negligence in a slip-and-fall injury?

If you have slipped and fallen on a premises, you are likely to wonder whether the ordeal that you went through entitles you to make a claim for damages. This is sometimes, but not always, the case. Some people assume that it is the extent of a person's injuries that dictates their ability to make a personal injury claim, but it is, in fact, the cause of the injury that is important and the circumstances surrounding it.
