Laws govern our lives. We are told where we can and cannot go, what we are and are not allowed to do. Some laws are put in place for very good reasons. They allows us to live in a safer environment than if we lived in an anarchist type society.
We may assume that we are all law abiding citizens, but even the most morally upright person has broken a law.
I consider myself to be a relatively moral person. I typically follow the law but there are times when I have done something knowing that I was breaking the law.
Here are a few things that I have done within the past 5 years that are illegal:
I speed just about every day.
I failed to register my car for a month and drove with expired tabs.
I slid on ice and hit another vehicle.
I have given alcohol to someone under the age of 21.
I have claimed to be a college student to get discounted movie tickets (stealing).
I jaywalk ~ all the time.
I stole someone's mail and threw it away. It was a Christmas Card ~ I know ~ BAD!
I lied to a police officer when they asked me if I knew how fast I was going when I got pulled over. I knew how fast I was going, I just played dumb.
I drove home once when I might have had just a bit too much to drink. I felt ok but when I was driving I realized that I was slightly buzzed.
Do you knowingly break laws? Do you break them on purpose because you think that they are stupid? What kind of laws do you break?
