Summer break is a great chance to try new things and relax after a hard semester. However, it is important to remember that performing illegal activities can result in fines, community service and even jail time. Wondering how to have fun over the break without violating any U.S. laws? The number of options available pleased us here at the Clog.
Eating at restaurants during their opening hours
Summer can be a great time to get together with friends and family. Why not try out restaurants you’ve never been to while you’re at it? Who knows, you might even find your new favorite place to eat! Keep in mind, though, that attempting to enter a restaurant when it’s closed is a fast way to put you on the wrong end of a breaking and entering charge. So, it’s important to ensure that the restaurant is actually open before trying to eat there.
Here at the Clog, we’re really not supposed to give our readers legal advice. That being said, we think it’s pretty much safe to tell you guys that, in most circumstances, hiking can’t get you in hot water with the law. As long as you keep off private property and leave before sunset, hiking by itself is a perfectly legal way to unwind this summer.
Texting and driving in Montana
Readers, it’s important to remember that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. That being said, technically, if you’re looking for legal activities to do in Montana, technically, even though we do not advise it, texting and driving does, technically, fall under that category in that specific state. Again, the Daily Clog, and by extension, the Daily Cal, does not condone or encourage texting and driving. However, purely for the purposes of this article, we would like to note that it is not illegal to text and drive in the state of Montana.
Staying inside and staring at a wall
We’re running pretty low on research time here but we are completely certain that, under normal circumstances, you can’t break any laws if you just stay in your room doing nothing. Feel free to sit and meditate for a while this summer. After all, it’s best to be sure that you’re not doing anything illegal.
After a long semester, it’s important to rest and recover without breaking the law. We hope that this guide inspires you to study the laws in your place of residence to find out exactly what you can and can’t legally do over the summer.
