New food laws in california

As with the start of any new year, the state of California has implemented a few new laws for the year of 2019. Two laws in particular are very big deals for anyone seeking to start their own business cooking food for others. One of those laws being the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act, and the other being Senate Bill (SB) 626.

The first law changes how cities and counties throughout California must handle street vendors. The second, pays attention to those who want to cook and sell food from their home kitchen. The hope behind these two new laws is that they will enable enterprising people to more easily build a business for themselves in the food industry. While doing so, the laws will also work to ensure that the food sold is healthy and edible.

Everyone has different feeling about driving. For some people, driving just means dealing with traffic and other drivers. For others, driving is all about freedom and having fun. Regardless of how a person feels about the task, driving is a great way to get wherever a person needs to be. Unfortunately, owning a car can be very costly.

Cars alone are not cheap, plus the gas they need to run, and all of the maintenance they need throughout their life. This high cost of ownership can prevent some people from being able to own a car for themselves. While this isn’t a problem for most people, since public transportation is usually available, others do have trouble not owning a car. They love to drive, and so they may decide to “borrow” someone else’s car...

are scooters the future of city travel?

If you live in a big city, or just a densely populated area, you’ve probably run into alternative methods of transportation. When cities become overcrowded, its citizens begin to look for ways to avoid all of the traffic and congestion. After all, no one likes to drive in heavy traffic.

For some people, this simply means hiring a Lyft, Uber, or taxi. Maybe the city has a good public transportation system such as a bus or a subway. These are relatively established systems that people can rely on. However, they can be a bit expensive and, for those who are trying to go green, these modes of transit aren’t very environmentally friendly.

As an adult, people have the freedom to go wherever they want whenever they want. However, it can be easy to forget that people aren’t allowed in every space, even if they want to be there. This is definitely the case for private property, where people need to get permission from the property owner to be on the premises.

What many people do not realize, is that many public places are considered private property. A perfect example of this would be a grocery store. The store owner either owns the building, or rents it from someone. Either way, they have the right to choose who can enter their building because even though it is a public area, it is privately owned.

As with most people, many property owners want to protect their property...

Most people recognize the fact that anyone under the age of 18, is a minor. As a a minor, a person doesn’t have either enough knowledge or life experience to make good decisions on their own.

The front door to a home is a portal to safety for many people. Once a person is home, they no longer have to worry about people or the outside world. They are in their own personal kingdom. They make the rules, and get to do whatever they want. A person’s home is their sanctuary, which is why people are often very selective of who they allow through the front door.

Exhausted homeowners may not want to deal with whoever may be knocking on their door. While rare, it could be a pushy salesperson trying to sell some product that the person doesn’t want or need. Dealing with that is not fun. However, maybe the person’s child may want to open the door. At what age should a child be allowed to do that?

What Counts as Hit and Run in California?

California hit and run laws

Nobody enjoys accidents, no matter how big or small they may be. However, dealing with spilled milk is much more tolerable than dealing with a car accident. Car accidents can range anywhere from a mild fender bender, to full on wrecks. At the low end of the spectrum, car accidents are a nuisance, at the other end, they can be devastating.

Arguably one of the hardest and most unpleasant thing for a person to do is own up to their mistakes. When a person has caused an accident, no matter how bad, they need to stay and deal with it. If a person doesn’t stay, either because they are late for something or they are afraid of the consequences, they are guilty of hit and run. Facing hit and run charges can be a lot worse than simply dealing with the accident when it happens, which is part of t...
