People who own dogs often think that they can control their pets at all times. Even if they have not taught their canines proper manners or introduced their pups to formal commands, these people may still believe that they can take their pets out in public without a leash. However, even the best-behaved dog can still be prone to unpredictable behavior. Rather than risk losing their beloved companions to animal control or the local dog pound, owners should follow the leash laws for these reasons. Unpredictable Behavior Just like small children, dogs often respond excitedly to different stimuli. When they venture into the public arena, their ears, noses, eyes, and other sensory organs are overwhelmed by all of the sights, sounds, and smells that bombard them at every turn. While some canines respond well to these triggers, others become frustrated or stressed. A stressed out and fatigued pup could easily bite someone who is just trying to stroke its head or back, giving the bite victim plenty of legal leeway to hire a personal injury attorney and pursue a case against the dog’s owner. When the dog is on a leash, however, its owner can restrain it if it tries to attack someone and reduce the chance that he or she will become the target of a personal injury lawsuit. Runaways and Lost Dogs Thousands of pets run away and get lost each year. When an unleashed dog takes off and runs away from its owner, it may not respond to...

The teenage years aren't always easy, but one high point is the moment of receiving their driver's license. Getting behind the wheel creates a sense of freedom, but what must be remembered is that driving can be dangerous, especially for inexperienced drivers. That's why it's essential for teens to understand the hazards that they face and how to avoid them. Driving Dangers One of the main factors associated with a teen's increased accident rate is due to their lack of experience. Teenagers are also more likely to text while driving, a proven cause of car wrecks. When other teens ride in the vehicle with them, peer pressure can be a problem. Tailgating or unsafely passing large trucks can occur when teens are out and about on joyrides, but these risky maneuvers are extremely dangerous. Research shows that the risk of fatality amongst drivers aged 16 to 17 is 3.6 times higher when they have passengers than when they are driving alone. Many youngsters don't realize that motor vehicle collisions kill more teenagers every year than any other single cause. Every day during 2010, seven teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19 were killed due to these accidents. The likelihood of a teen being in a car wreck is 2.7 times higher than that of drivers over the age of 20. What does the Law Say? Every state has laws to protect drivers on the road. Tailgating, for instance, is usually an offense that will result in a ticket for "following...

How College Student Criminals Make Schools More Expensive More and more young Americans are finding out about the overwhelming burden of college student loan debt. Even those who don't go into debt, though, still see large portions of their income go towards funding their education. What many students don't realize is that there are usually "junk fees" tacked onto their cost of education. These are fees that are added on by colleges, often misleadingly, that are not directly related to tuition. Every college student will likely experience paying off these fees, but it surprises many to know that issues related to substance abuse and crime that occurs on college campuses can actually increase the amount of fees they face. TMZ News Story: Texas A&M Football Players Busted for Weed Students go to college to receive an education, and rising college tuition is already a sore point with many of them--especially when fees unrelated to education are tacked on to the bill. There's often resentment about paying for something they don't feel they participate in, particularly those pertaining to school athletic fees. Some feel that if they are not sports fans or attend games that they are paying junk fees for something that is unnecessary for education. With that in mind, it is even harder to swallow the recent story of three Texas A&M football jocks that made a series of stupid decisions that was reported recently in a TMZ news story. The TMZ story reported that two Texas A&M football...

  Law enforcement technology is constantly evolving. Whereas drunk driving tests once involved blowing into a football bladder, technology has now led to flashlights that can detect the presence of alcohol in a person's breath. One thing that seems to be a constant, however, is the use of police dogs.  Man's best friend has continuously proven to be an essential asset in the world of law enforcement, and there's no telling how many officers' lives have been saved because of these companions. Unfortunately, these dogs have sometimes been known to "go rogue," and when this happens, innocent bystanders usually catch the worst of it.  Rogue Police Dogs Most peoples' experiences with police dogs is only as extensive as watching episodes of Cops on television. Some individuals, though, have been through the less-than-exciting experience of actually being bitten by these dogs. A quick Google search will show that many of the people attacked by police dogs are actually innocent bystanders, and in some cases, these victims are even young children. While it's true that bites aren't likely to make the local news when the appropriate offender is bitten, it's hard to ignore all of the stories of non-criminals being attacked. Dogs in police K-9 units are supposed to obey all of their handler's commands. It's when they ignore these orders that serious issues can arise. In fact, there have been cases where one particular police dog has been involved in several wrongful bite situations. Sadly, this isn't uncommon. This is because the...
