Can I Get in Trouble with a Drunk Minor in My Vehicle?

It’s the call every parent hopes to get – the call of a responsible teenager. Imagine this, your teenage child asks to go out with some friends for the night. With the promise of not getting into trouble and being home by 10:00 PM, you agree. Now, it’s 10:15 and your child still isn’t home when the phone rings. As a parent, there is an immediate pit in your stomach but this time it’s simply your child calling for a ride home after they consumed alcohol.

We know that your first reaction when you hear that your child has been illegally consuming alcohol is to be angry. However, take a deep breath and pause for a moment.

Have You Heard of These Strange Laws?

Have You Heard of These Strange Laws

Just about everyone knows that not every idea is a good idea. We’ve all had ideas that we thought were great at the time, but learned in retrospect that they really weren’t that great. It can surprise some people to learn that even state governments have bad ideas from time to time. Some of these bad ideas become laws, and others do not. Some of these bad laws, are still technically in effect today.

Here are some examples of bad laws from around the country:

• In Idaho, it is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
• Also from Idaho, riding a merry-go-round on Sundays is a crime.
• In Rhode Island, any marriage where one of the person’s is a lunatic or an idiot is null and void.
