Drunk Driving During the Holidays
The holiday season is one of the most critical times of the year for alcohol-related accidents. An increased number of special events and parties lead to increased alcohol consumption, which makes drunk driving more prevalent. Each year, over a hundred thousand drinking and driving arrests take place in California. In 2008, more than 400 arrests were made on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, in Los Angeles County alone.
If a police officer has reasonable grounds to believe that you driving under the influence, he/she may ask you to take a field sobriety test. Depending on their assessment of your level of intoxication, you could be arrested for driving under the influence. The financial costs of a DUI arrest can be substantial and not what you imagined for your holiday season.
A new year is upon us. It's time to set new goals and make a new year's resolutions you can stick to. For 2010, why not make updating your will or trust at the top of your resolution list?
When was the last time you updated your will or trust? Remember that once a will is written, it can't just be ignored. Just as you would take your car for a regular maintenance to work effectively, or visit the doctor for checkups, you should also review your will. With time, your wishes and/or circumstances can change, along with the law.
When you purchase a home, common interest development, planned unit development, or co-op, you may automatically become a member of the Homeowners' Association (HOA). This organization is made up of all the people who own property in the same development. The Homeowners' Association can have authority regarding how your property can be used.
When deeds are transferred to houses in new developments, there are always certain limitations on how the property can be used and decisions are in the hands of the Homeowners' Association. These limitations are called covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs).
