Be Smart About Your Actions

In doing all you can to steer clear of trouble in your lifetime, keep in mind a few pointers:

  1. Don’t go looking for trouble – To start, do not go out of your way looking for trouble. An example of this would be ending up with one or more traffic tickets. Sure, you may not even realize you are going over the speed limit when you see flashing red lights. That said don’t push the envelope to the point where you are asking for trouble. In the event you do end up with a traffic ticket or two over time, make sure you deal with them sooner than later. Some drivers make the mistake of forgetting about a ticket or two. When they do, they could end up with a warrant out for their arrest. In case this sounds like you, it would be wise to take the time to do a free warrant search online. With such a search, you move closer to discovering if you are under the eyes of law enforcement and the courts.
  2. Run-ins with neighbors – You may have some great neighbors that you cherish. That said there may be one you can’t get along with no matter how hard you try. With that in mind, it is important for you to never get into a physical confrontation with a neighbor. For some homeowners and renters, they do in fact have run-ins with neighbors. In some cases, they get heated enough where police must come to the scene. Do your best to walk away from such confrontations so that you do not end up in handcuffs and legal trouble.
  3. Issues during a divorce – One of the heated confrontations one can have is going through a divorce. That said you want to steer clear of such confrontations that could change your life for years to come. Yes, a divorce can be stressful and traumatic enough. With that in mind, you want to take the high road and not get into confrontations with your soon-to-be ex.
  4. Leaving a job – Last, leaving a job can be one of the more stressful things you do in life. This is especially the case when you leave not under your terms. With that being the case, do not get into a physical confrontation with your employer or any of their staff. Unfortunately, you hear all too often about where such confrontations turn deadly. As tough as it is, leave the job and move on with life. Remember, the wrong actions can doom your job hopes for years to come.

If you do all you can to steer clear of criminal issues, life can be pretty good.

So, are you being a law-abiding citizen?
