Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Is there a speed limit for skateboarders in New Zealand? I could use a quick answer on this, as I am about to pass a truck.

Answer: Slower than you are going, mate! (YouTube, Longboarding the Bombay Hills, Auckland, NZ)

2) Question: Yes, I see that stupid piece of tape on the ground in the grocery store, but I'm supposed to be on break! I'll just pick it up 15 minutes from now when I clock back in. What's the worst that could happen?

Answer: Well, a woman could fall when her foot gets stuck on the piece of tape on the floor in the store, causing her to then step on a piece of plywood which then moves out from under her, causing her foot to fall in a hole and the rest of her to fall into a display rack. (Lowering the Bar, From the Docket: A Trip-and-Fall-and-Slip-and-Fall-and-Fall Case)

3) Question: I'm not going to lie, I'm way too drunk to drive my truck. The responsible thing to do here is to let me grandson serve as designated driver, right?

Answer: In some instances, yes. But if your grandson is 12 years old, you're going to need a Plan C. (Bad Lawyer, 12-Year-Old Designated Driver)
